Good stuff. Some MOD aught to make this a “sticky” so it’s always available at the top.

Thanks for assembling it!

Nice, thanks.... doing whatever in the woods, swamps you'd always run into some concrete foundation or pillars that supported the old WW2 wood.

I loved being at Mackall, it felt like being in the presence of giants. Every time I saw one of those foundations it made me think. Somewhere I still have that Cap they gave us before being Airborne qualified which sported the glider patch...

It's nice to know our history, where we came from, and how it makes us who we are...

I can only take credit for hanging the info on here. I got this stuff from someone out at Camp Mackall. These must have been hiding somewhere until someone found them and put them on digits...
