Traveler, writer, reviewer, all-round observer. I like anything cool & fast, but occasionally sit at a cafe watching the world go by.
In honor of WWII and the courageous vets of the time, this is my reporting and take of the news, 75 years ago today
March 15, 1940
As trouble continues on land and sea throughout the world, your Roving Reporter brings you the news as it happens to give you folks at home the stories of the day…
‘England Becomes Accident Prone’
It seems the Ides of March is a bad day for Great Britain. After dropping leaflets over Warsaw, while low on fuel, the RAF Whitley bomber made an emergency landing in Germany, thinking they were in France. Realizing their error when some locals confirmed their position, the crew quickly took off from the small field before German troops were able to capture them. During the night, the bomber safely landed in France.
And in the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean, British aircraft carrier HMS Eagle suffered major damage after an explosion took place where they store 250Lb aircraft-bombs. 14 of the crew were killed in the accident, and the ship arrived today in Singapore for repairs.
That’s it for now. Your Roving Reporter, Aki Solomos, signing off.
