Old news

Not sure if this is the right place to post this. I took some pictures of an old newspaper that was with some tools that were my grandfathers. It is from November 8, 1951.










These movies any good? The war movies are "This is Korea" and "The Frogmen".

When I was about 9 years old, I found a scrapbook that contained newspaper clippings from WW2 and Korea. Found it in a trash can. I thought it was pretty cool, and took it home. Somehow, I managed to hang onto it for 52 years, and this thread prompted me to scan some of the clippings from that old scrapbook. So here are a few of them. I hope some of y'all find them interesting.

I remember seeing some of those maps in the newspaper when I was a kid, about 6 years old at the time. That's a nice history find!

Thanks from Littlejohn

Ironic as heck beeks. I was watching a history channel show last night about how the Navy SEALS came about and several of the "forefathers" said they saw the movie The Frogmen and decided THAT was what they wanted to do.

RE: Korean War, As a kid I'd see those maps in the news paper and my mom would explain what the lines/areas meant. I was about 6 or so.
When I was a teen, mom bought a house on the other side of town and we found newspapers used as shelf lining, One paper had a story stating that if Germany invaded Poland England would take action. (Phony War?) Papers were stuck to shelfs!

I think I need to watch that movie. Captain Horatio Hornblower is rated quite highly as well. It's about the British fighting Napoleon's navy in the America's.
