Cages used by British miners as late as 1987 had oxygen tanks that would revive canaries affected by carbon monoxide:

In 1987 such cages were replaced by electronic gas detectors.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE NOW-UNEMPLOYED CANARIES! Image
Quote:
Today, the National Mining Museum Scotland has thirteen canaries and they are unsurprisingly very popular with visitors!



Hmm, Seems like it be cheaper to just have a whole bunch of canaries.

juno beach on d-day, attacked by canadian forces

Image

it's not widely known that while the americans at omaha took the worst casualties (as shown during the insane opening to saving private ryan), juno was a close second

huge numbers of landing craft were sunk by german booby traps, while the beach itself was swept by machine gun and cannon fire ... the day after the landings they managed to fight off an assault by some of the best tank units in the german army (panzer lehr and hitler youth)

we uncouth individual about trump but jesus christ, what that generation faced

I read the excellent book "A War To Be Won" (Murray & Millet) thanks to ribby and the thing that struck me was the sheer numbers of casualties described.

canada sustained in a single day in normandy about ten times the casualties sustained in many years of fighting in afghanistan

america was key to winning the war, but per capita, canada's sacrifices were severe

Someone needs to update this meme with a JAVELIN. HELLFIRE is still used for anti-tank purposes, but JAVELIN comes in from the top, and would make for a better visual.
