An American GI watches the line in a Normandy hedgerow with his .30 caliber M1919 Browning machine gun just outside of St. Lô, 27th of July, 1944. After D-Day the Allies had failed to see one leg geographic feature in Normandy. The fields in Normandy were irregular in size and pattern, they were also walked in by 10 foot high hedgerows that were made up of thick tree roots and you could not see through them. The Germans quickly took advantage of this and began to slow the Allied advance to a crawl. Even M4 Sherman tanks couldn't get throw them and when they tried their soft under bellies were exposed to German Panzershrecks and Panzerfaust fire. They also experimented with fired artillery shells and filled them with TNT but this took to log and took up to much TNT. They tried fitting a bulldozers head to a M4 Sherman which worked but it would take months for them to arrive on the front lines. It appeared a stalemate was setting in. General Omar Bradley wanted to avoid a WW1 like stalemate in France so he set his eyes on St.Lô which was around 30 miles from the front lines. This objective seemed as far as Berlin to the soldiers on the ground. Bradley wanted St.Lô because he was looking for terrain that didn't have as many hedgerows and was much more open, this is where American soldiers had been trained to fight. This essential terrain could be found all around central France and St. Lô was key to get there. The fighting was fierce and casualties were very high. They still hadn't broken through the hedgerows and wouldn't till late July. On the American Homefront as 4th of July passed, no fireworks were set, no parties were made, all that was on the minds of the American people were the boys in France. By mid-July the Americans were moving into the city but, were facing increasing resistance and knew this fight would not be an easy one. When the city was finally captured thousands were dead, and sadly many more were to come with them.

#KnowyourNavy Indian Naval Ship Sandhayak, a hydrographic survey ship, was commissioned into the #IndianNavy on 26 February 1981. The ship has a displacement of 1,950 tonnes, a length of 86 metres and a beam of 13 metres. She is manned by a crew of 16 officers and 180 sailors. The ship is fitted with an array of the modern hydrographic equipment including single beam echo-sounder, towed side scan sonar and modern survey software suite, which together provide the ship the capability of mapping seabed features accurately and meeting stringent international standards laid down by the International Hydrographic Organisation. The ship carries four nine meter survey motor boats and one integral Chetak helicopter in support of survey operations. The primary role of the ship is hydrographic survey operations, and she can also undertake coastal and offshore patrol, coastal security, HADR and anti-piracy operations and can also operate as a hospital ship. The name ‘Sandhayak’ means one who carries out a special search. The ship’s crest depicts the sixteen points of a mariner’s compass, enclosing a ‘divider’ and an ‘anchor’ on sea waves, symbolising the charting of oceans which is the basic role of the survey ship. The ships motto is ‘Victory through Excellence’ inspiring all men to strive hard to reach summit through professional acumen.

A little practice for one day when I get to go to the Academy Awards! Last night I attended the premiere of short film Teal Soldiers. It was a special night for a lot of people I know from our local film industry and raised $1000 for Ivarian Cancer research 💚#teal#soldiers Photo Credit... My Mum.. @carriemcleodphotography .
