D Day Glider Pilot Photo's

These two pics were uploaded to the WW2Talk forum earlier this year and I thought I'd better put them on here as they contain some nice details. They were taken by Sgt. Dave Reynolds who jumped with 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion. The GP's are waiting on the beach to be taken back to England should they be needed for further glider operations. Of note are the chap with the Thompson, the chap next to him with the German K98, use of respirator cases and the strangely fitted helmet which looks (to me) very much like a Dispatch Riders helmet. Feast your eyes! And follow the link to the WW2Talk forum for more information. Matt
