    Full head of hair, and only a wee sprinkling of grey (except the beard, which is like a badger!)

    40 years ago the Iranian Embassy siege in London was ongoing. Ended with an SAS assault on 5 May 1980. PM Margaret Thatcher was told the plan was to shield the raid from press photographers. She said no, she wanted the world to see how Britain dealt with terrorists on our soil.

    During WWII, Jews in Budapest were brought to the edge of the Danube, ordered to remove their shoes, and shot, falling into the water below.

    60 pairs of iron shoes now line the river's bank, a ghostly memorial to the victims.

    1/6 #OTD in 1944 the greatest armada ever to leave our shores delivered fire, fury and thousands of troops on to the beaches of Normandy.

    By the day’s end Hitler’s Atlantic Wall was punctured by the bravery, ingenuity and overwhelming firepower of Allied forces. #Dday#WW2
