I know it’s a cliche. But pictures like this just hit me so hard. Most of those guys are around my age.
They all had mates, gfs/wives, banter, rivalries, goals, stresses etc. They’re all young lads.
Then a few decades later they were old, haggard, largely forgotten and often disrespected by younger generations.
Yet they’re exactly us. Just a few decades before. And seeing those cheeky grins and hairstyles just reminds me so much that they were just like us.
And they were kept in PoW camps.
I can’t wrap my head around the war. It blows my mind.
