Radio Press News

24 May 1944
Attached are three pages from the May 24, 1944, Radio Press News that were distributed thru our ship during the war. This is the way we found out what was going on in the world. It's fascinating reading even though much of it was slanted at the time.
Of special interest is the last page where our skipper is politely slapping our wrists and cautioning us what is ahead in the European Theatre. Although the year is not shown, it is obviously 1944... probably less than one month before the invasion of France.
Julie Becton is the one who sent them as part of her father's memorabilia.
