I just spent the past day and a half reading various historical articles that I found informative with great pics.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I have.  If you've read them already...I hate you for not sharing them :angry:

I've come across another excellent site with lots of archival pictures, mostly RCAF as well as Canadian armour/artillery, but also US and other nations.  Links all down the right hand side.

Yup, could spend quite a few hours perusing this authors site.  May need to buy one or more of his books...
