Bausele Pilot

Post by JAS1125 » Wed Jun 26, 2019 10:43 am

Recently it was the anniversary of the Normandy invasion during WWII as I read articles and gazed upon the pictures, it caused me to do some deep reflecting. As I reflected I thought about the bravery, courage, fear, that the people involved in the invasion must have felt. I sat in astonishment as I read facts that these articles brought awareness to. An example of this was that Hitler was staying in his Bavarian home at the time of the invasion and his generals were afraid to order reinforcements without his permission and they were also afraid to call him to wake him, thus giving the allied forces the ability to overtake the beaches. The other thing that I learned that astonished me was that the weather almost canceled the allied invasion but the weather report stated that there was a 12 hour window in the weather that they acted upon. It amazes me that given the limited technology in the 1940’s, the weather report was that accurate, that trusted. I love history and it never ceases to amaze me as I learn about the past. Bausele did exactly that, reflected upon the past, learned from the past and set out to use this knowledge of the past to infuse it into our modern world.

Interesting story, what it has to do with that alleged watch escapes me entirely. I are a pilot and pilot style watches generally appeal to me, but WTF is that?

No idea... I do have to give him credit for finding these "time pieces".
I had no idea there was so much crap floating around

Reflecting on the invasion of Normandy is important. That watch is awful. I don't see the connection either.
