    View attachment 308469 Some great full page pullouts where the pictures have stayed crystal clear over the years because being folded. A small article on how Italy was successfully moving against Greece. That is what is the cool thing about these newspaper clippings. You know now what the end result will be but back then history was still not written.

    This is a booboo. Greece also had the Kilkis and Lemnos until they was sunk by the Germans on April 23, 1941

    11-3-1940 & 11-5-1940. I think this is the first time I have seen pilots from the BoB saved in his books. Interesting that names are not being used?
