Let's Have a Commonwealth Moment.

Happy Birthday to the Canadian Flag, born this day in 1965.

At the prodding of CAPT H of the Canadian Army, I offer up a British bit of history...

Ladies and Gentlemen, I say unto you, Colonel Geoffrey Powell.

And, of course, the Red Ensign Standard #15 is up...

I think Ballantine Books' WWII series is out of print, but I must have read the Market-Garden volume six or seven times. Didn't remember COL Powell's name (it's been thirty years since I read it--gimme a break), but I remember the actions described in his obit covered several Ballantine pages--I was seriously impressed.
