A Dewoitine 520. Just before the battle of France in June 1940. From my father’s archives. He was a second lieutenant in the French Air Force. I don’t know who the pilot was. (Always ask the old folks who is on the picture. And write it on the album.) The Dewoitine 520 was similar in performance to the German Messerschmidt 109 and the British Spitfire that later fought gallantly the Battle of England. Alas, production was slow and the first Dewoitine fighters were not delivered until may 1940. Not enough to fight. And France passed the bucket to the Brits.
Thank you for joining us on H.M.S Equinox Time and Space shuttle.
A brief update on Brexit. I am delighted to hear that Mr. Judas Johnson, Esq. has thrown the towel and will not run for Downing Street. On another front, to-day was the commemoration of the Battle of the Somme. (Soon to be former) Premier David Cameron, and a few Royals were invited by (hopefully) (soon to be former) President François “Netherlands” (No offense to my Dutch friends). No speeches were uttered, thank God. Now, Mr. “Netherlands'” attitude in the past few days, while half of Britain is in shock, and maybe a fraction of the other half might be realizing what they have done, has basically been to say “Get out. Now.” He probably thinks he will get votes. Beyond a total lack of education, I think his attitude can only be qualified with one simple word: despicable.
There will no post next week as we are going to San Francisco. That means a lot of material for next posts. 🙂
Have a great week-end.
