I went for a walk about London. Now that I have a great pair of shoes, it has literally given me wings, I can walk for hours without my knee swelling up like a puffer fish.
I turned the corner and there’s your American Embassy.
This is something that I wanted to see for a long time. The American volunteer pilots who fought for the United Kingdom during WW2. This monument is a great remembrance to those brave pilots.
There were three squadrons, 71, 121 and 133. Brave men, many many died here. These squadrons were transferred to the USA 8th Air Force and now are based in the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Quite a story. We thank them warmly.
Man, we specialise even in bloody garbage!
Looking at the imposing if a bit boring buildings on the east side of the garden, I exit the square. Nice place but too anti septic, too processed and too clean and tidy for my taste. It didn't ring my bells, I am afraid.
