My grandfather was listed as a clerk and a cook in the army during WWII. He rarely ever talked about the war, other than he said he was in France. He passed away about 20 years ago and going thru his belongings my mother found a lot of photographs and then we realized he was there at D-Day. My grandfather always liked taking photographs, but we never knew he had a stack of a couple hundred photos that he had taken in France. Among the photos were a couple of pictures that I can only assume were taken shortly after D-Day showing the landing crafts unloading supplies and equipment on the beaches of Normandy.
70 years later I feel compelled to share these photos. We take photos with our cell phone of everything and everywhere and don’t really think about it how amazing it is to be able to do that. I am not sure what my grandfather had for a camera, probably a Kodak Brownie Camera, but whatever he had, he took a lot of photos with it. I thought I would share some with you since photos were meant to be shared and seen, even if it has been 70 years.
