 To those who helped me along the way


This site could not have been started, let alone alone developed in the way it has, had it not been for the interest shown and the often great help given by a great number of people out there. I would like to thank all of them.

First of all, I would like to thank my wife, Sushsmita, for supporting me in this work and most of all for giving me the idea for this project in the first place.

Secondly, I would like to thank Glenn Hensley.  It was only after I had stumbled across his unique photos of the era that I decided to focus on the 1940s.  Then it were only his memories which he passed on to me when I interviewed him about his pictures, which really got me thinking that there will be others out there with great memories to share and that they should be recorded.

Last but not least, I would like to thank everyone else who has been involved in helping me with this project. Some gave advice, some encouragement, others contributed their own or relative's material, sent photos, books, diaries, or gave interviews. Others arranged for copyright releases, or access to archives. and libraraies. Some just posed questions which made me think...
But whatever it was that they did, all in all, without them it would not have been possible to get this project off the ground. In no particular order I would therefore like to thank
