"...bombings in Laos and Cambodia..."
This is the oldest newsflash from television I can remember.
Maybe it was because it was repeated every night.
Bombings in Laos and Cambodia.
The speaker saying that night after night.
And the image on the TV screen of helicopters landing or taking off.
A war, in some far away place.
Today I don't care to watch TV,
don't even own one.
Too many reruns.
Retro babe "...very uplifting performance, honey!.."
Panzer Pzkpfw II, Ausf A/B/C
Note the many helmets carried on the outside of the panzer, internal storage space was very limited on the Panzer II. The practise of carrying the crew's helmets on the outside of the panzer was discontinued later in the war because too many helmets were lost.
