The White Cliffs of Dover
Posted by Russ Webb on January 18, 2009, 10:21 pm
At long last I would be able to see the White Cliffs of Dover made popular by a beautiful song that came out during the early days of World War II. Our Liberty ship had taken aboard a British pilot who would guide us up the English Channel to South End, on our way to Antwerp. It was March of 1945 and the war in Europe was winding down. The Pilot told us ahead of time that the Cliffs were really gray, and not white, but it did not dull our imaginations, we stared and stared as we sailed along the ten-mile stretch of Cliffs.
