When Men Were Men and Submarines Ran Scared

It was 1943, the turning point in the Battle of the Atlantic

Blimps were in the air and subs were running scared.

Alphonse Grappone, affectionately known as "Airship Al", sent us these pictures of a blimp based depth charge deployment from his days in the Naval LTA program during WW2.
