On the Sea: Photos from WWII
War, what is it good for?
I’m pretty sure my late maternal great-grandfather had an answer to the above question. To anyone who asked him about what it was like to fight in World War I, he’d say, “When you see a young, blue-eyed, blonde-haired boy coming up over the rise in front you, carrying a gun and looking as terrified as you feel, there is only one certainty and that is one of you will wind up dead.”
But this post isn’t about my great-grandfather. Instead, it’s full of my late paternal grandfather’s photos that he took during World War II, while serving as a crew member aboard the HMCS Orkney K448.
