I have visited the Imperial War Museum during a journey in London. Here are some photos (free admission, photographing allowed).

Hallo dragos :D

Some Great Pictures.

Did you picture the two large Naval Guns taken from a Royal Naval Battleship that are in front of the doors to the Museum??

I took these a few years ago:

Please excuse the large size of my pictures, but it really emphasizes the size of these guns.

Kevin in Deva. :D

This log / book was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth the 2nd in 1958 and presented to Richard Nixon, then "only" vice-president.
It has the names of all USAAF personnel that died while performing their duty.
I donít know if only those that died in Europe + Africa, or also with those who died in the Pacific as well.
It is opened only at those pages, under glass, in Saint Paul Cathedral (London).

I underlined with yellow "Brazda, C.W. T/Sgt. U.S.A.A.F."
"Brazda" means "Furrow" not only in Romanian, but also in Serbo-Croatian, Slovak and Slovene.
So his ancestry is quite a puzzle Ö
