An interesting video on the contributions of "navies in exile" during WW 2.

If any of you are ever in College Station TX stop by the Museum of the GI. They've got some great WWI, WWII, and Vietnam era vehicles in there
Texas, where we have the death penalty and aren't afraid to use it! Build the wall!!

Inside a British Mark IV tank...

I could be the catalyst that sparks the revolution
I could be an inmate in a long-term institution
I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die
I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by
What a waste...
