That casualty number is staggering Nick!

The composition 'reads' well and the lighting picks out the details nicely.

Quote: That casualty number is staggering Nick!

Yes when you realise it's over 44% of all those that served. By far the highest casualty rate of any of the forces, and there services weren't even recognised until a few months ago, due to the shame of the carpet bombing policy at Hamburg and Dresden (to name but two).
