U.S 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment Memorial Nottingham

Myself and my partner visited Wollaton Hall in Nottingham last weekend. As well as enjoying a bright sunny day at the deer park, I also took the opportunity to photograph the 508th P.I.R memorial which is situated in the grounds. As many will probably know the 508th were stationed there in 1944 prior to their being sent to Normandy, and Holland. There are quite a few photos on the web of their camp on the Hall grounds. Including the above one of an infantryman about to undergo his combat training.
