Prague, April 2012, Pt 1


Went for a little tour to Prague this week. By pure chance I found out about the army museum being just a few blocks away from my hotel. This great museum is a must if you ever find yourself being in Prague and is mostly on the world wars. A wall had a some posters printed to boost the British morale during the WW 2 period. The above is showing an invasion in the Mediterranean theatre of operations. But is it the landing in North Africa in 1942 or is it the invasion in South of France1944? Can't tell for sure...

This one is showing a scene from the Lofoten commando raid in 1941. British troops blew up a considerable amount of oil, trashed the harbour, grabbed a number of prisoners and brought back a bunch of willing and able Norwegians for combat training on British soil.

This one is also showing a scene from the Mediterranean battlegrounds. But from where is is supposed to be? The invasion of Sicily was the first usage of DUKW amphibious trucks.
