The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
The real Guy Gibson or Richard Todd?
Your views please, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Well the top pic is Richard Todd in The Dambusters, I assume the middle pic is on Guy Gibbson VC. The bronze bust looks like it is of Richard Todd
Richard Todd was a regular guest at Shrewsbury depot passing out parades, ex OBLI!
Needs one of these, surely....
The bust looks more like Richard Todd than Guy Gibson.
The top pic looks more like Humphrey Bogart than the Toddster.
Thought he was ex Para....?
About time that you studied your WWII history a bit more then!
So his role wasin the film 'The Longest day', is VERY apt?
Old "Hold until relieved" Todd, Hey?
Perhaps so - so why has he been photographed wearing the Tie worn by ex-Arnhem vets...as in The Parachute Regiment one ? Surely ,he isn't a Walt ?
...and Yes - I saw the Film,& didn't confuse him with John Frost...
So apt that he was offered the chance to play himself in the film, but could not face it!
According to an interview with him a few years ago, in the final sceen of The Dambusters he actually had a whole field of dust in his eyes, walking off into the distance, as he could remember writing similar letters after D-Day!
