    In this thread you will be able to post the best of photos you've photographed which is World War 2 related.

    It could be either because of the simple beauty of the photo you've captured, or maybe the photo has a significant meaning to you.


    I'll go first. For a long time i've been trying to capture the essence of what I find fascinating about those huge concrete blocks known as bunkers lying sporadically along the west coast of this country. Ever since I was a little boy I have been both fascinated and a little scared by these giant concrete monsters resting in the dunes, constantly reminding of a time that once was.

    I'll probably post several times on this thread, but I'll just put these 2 up for now.

    2 of my favourites only because no zoom lens was used...I was this close to her when she started up, taxied and took off right infront of me. Amazing experience...buzzing the airfield at treetop height right above our heads was pretty amazing too, but I wasnt fast enough to get pics.

    P51D Mustang "Janie" based at Hardwick, Norfolk

    In 2007 my wife & I paid a return visit to Trieste & Venice.

    The sirens of this ambulance boat drew me to our balcony window and I was able to get a few shots of this boat roaring past

    Very nice photos folks :)

    That P51 Mustang sure is beautiful!!


    Alright, the next i'll post is from my visit at the Sachsenhausen kz camp which made quite an impact on me. To see the barracks, watchtowers, crematoriums etc. really got one thinking of the horrors that went on in this camp and camps which were even worse than this one.

    I have to agree, magnificent quality photographs.

    The Mustang has always been one of my favourite aeroplanes:)

    Great stuff! Adam, I especially like the photo with the two elderly chaps, looks like memories are coming back to them! :)

    Here's a photo from my visit to Berlin. It's a memorial for the victims of the war placed at the old guardhouse. I very much like the lighting in this place.

    A few more from me

    This one isn't anything special other than I 'got it' at just the right moment - take at the war and peace show a couple of years ago

    I took this in Truro town centre when my wife and I lived in Cornwall. It was just sat there one Saturday in 2006...
    I asked about it and was told this chap just kept it in his garden and brought it out every now and then

    Turns out there is a little bit more to the story than that and the chap is doing a book about Spits with lots of unpublished photos etc, here is the link..
    Oh, and he does keep it in his back garden!

    Not all WW2 I suppose but always strike a chord with me!

    First two Brookwood on a foggy morning.

    Third one- Guardian Spirit- If you look closely you can see the WW1 aeroplane in the cloud.

    Fourth- A WW1 cemetery early one morning

    Fifth- more recent but has a dignity to it
