  1. Feb 26, 1993: A truck bomb built by Islamic extremists explodes in the parking garage of the North Tower of New York’s World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others.

  2. The link for “the Chindits” takes people to an Amazon site for a book, that has this description: =
    ” War in the Wilderness offers the disturbing and harrowing first-hand accounts of no less than 50 veterans of Major-General Orde Wingate’s two bitterly-fought campaigns in North Burma in 1943–44. Chindit service in the Burmese jungle was widely acknowledged as the most demanding ground combat role given to any Allied troops in World War II. Landed by glider on rough and remote jungle airstrips, hundreds of miles behind Japanese lines, the men lived on emergency rations for months, battling the monsoon conditions, disease, and a ruthless enemy. …
    They marched for >>1000 miles in tropical conditions, across some of the wildest country on Earth, with half their bodyweight on their backs. The Burma campaign left thousands dead and virtually all survivors were hospitalized. But those who did return remained Chindits for the rest of their lives. Their suffering and achievements were recognized by their place of honor, at the head of the annual Cenotaph parade.”

    Wikipedia has this article: “National Service of Remembrance”

    “The National Service of Remembrance is held annually on Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London. It commemorates “the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”. The service has its origins in the 1920s and has changed little in format since.” …

    “After a short religious service, a march-past of hundreds of veterans processes past the Cenotaph.” … … “The Cenotaph has its origin in a temporary wood and plaster structure designed by Edwin Lutyens for a peace parade following the end of the First World War.” … … “the British War Cabinet decided … that a permanent memorial should replace the wooden version and be designated Britain’s official national war memorial.”
