I was just looking through my digital photos, and found this one that might be of interest to some people. I took it in Poole, in Dorset, in July 2007. It remembers the coast guard cutters from the USA that aided the D Day invasion in 1944. I hadn't heard of the Rescue Flotilla, and I found it deeply moving to read of it in this plaque. "Semper paratus" is the coastguard motto, apparently, it means "always ready".
