Photo of the Day

I took this snap of a young lad in the grounds of Dublin Castle last Saturday morning. He was taking part in a soldiers exhibition. He told me that he had traveled the world over to participate in events honouring the US 101st Airborn Division and its World War Two campaigns. He even met many of the Easy Company members who fough their way through Normandy in 1944 and were made famous by the Band of Brothers programme. He told me about meeting men such as Edward Heffron, Donald Malarkey and the late Bob Compton. The latter who became well known in the late 1960's for prosecuting Sirhan Sirhan for the assassination of Robert Kennedy, died last February.

nice photo, but it must be a lonely road he's travelling!
