well, i dont have a picture, but i could tell you how my grand grandfather died

 

so, he was at a cattle market at Cologne, when some american(or maybe british) bombers attacked.

some bombs hit the powerstatios/some cables and the light got out while he was running down the stairs.because of that he stumbled and fell down, while some people ran over him. he broke several bones andgot sent to a hospital, where he got some lung disea and died of it.

 

 

it was pretty much not what i expected to hear when i asked how he died

wanna hear another WW2 story ?

Don't have pics on hand but I'll bite with a little info on mine:

My grandad (looks a lot like Sean Connery but isn't - lol) served in WW2 in the merchant Navy and was torpedoed and taken prisoner by the Japs. Spent his life hating the Japs after witnessing some pretty aweful stuff.

 

Whole family was military with two uncles being majors serving in the Angolan war against the Cubans and FAPLA with their Russian advisors; another a lieutenant colonel and now my youngest brother joining the US Navy and being sent of to Japan. I could go on for a long time on our history but it would get boring without pics, will see if I can get any scanned in.
