    One thing about the Arnhem shot is look at the angle of the Tube , the Germans were very close by !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I did not print those labels, they are printed on the postcard at the point of creation!

    Not really what I had in mind... I was thinking more of photos of soldiers who look like grizzled combat veterans.
    Without giving specifications as to what you had in mind, the subject matter was open to interpretation. They are all combat vets, some just didnt survive engagement with the enemy!
