Photographs from Operation Bold Mariner

Launched against the Batangan Peninsula on 16 January 1969, BLT 2/26 Marines and BLT 3/26 Marines assaulted the north by helio, and landing craft, while Operation Russell Beach sealed off the South. Once on land, the Marines linked with the Army, pushing east and forcing the VC towards the sea. Along the way, the Marines and Army encountered an extensive (but common place) of mines, booby-traps, and underground tunnels.

By the 19th, Marines had captured 56 Vietnamese of military age, and under interrogation were discovered to be members of the the C-95 Sapper Company. Over 11k civilians were removed by the Marines for screening, resulting in the population being largely removed from the area during the assault phase; the people were allowed to return in April 1969.

Alec submitted to medievalpoc:

Saw this in person a while back and though it was pretty interesting that this person / his family thought the sword was important enough to put on his tomb effigy.

It also is pretty clear evidence for contact, at least indirectly (not that that’s in question) between China and France.

You can read an article about this sword here.

The Aftershocks

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!
