Blue on Blue covered-up prior to D-Day. Found a fascinating story in the Observer. http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,6903,1217885,00.html It is claimed that when GIs were practising beach landings at Slapton Sands, the "opposing" forces had mistakenly loaded live ammo, and killed a s*it-load of their oppos. Doesn't make that much sense to me; surely they would of known what rounds they were loading into their weapons, and that they were going to be training them on their own side? being a Matelot who has never taken part in a live firing exercise, I was wondering what you folks make of the story?
