Kayaks in wartime. D-Day 75th Rememberance today. (6/6/2019)
Many commando style operations using kayaks were undertaken during the Second WW, to good effect. The best known being the raid on the U-Boat bunkers in Bordeaux during occupation. Visiting there recently the scale and bravado required for such a raid became apparent. Only two of the original ten paddlers, dropped by submarine off the coast of France, made it back home after the raid. Spare a thought today for those who put themselves in harm's way for the sake of the world's freedom. Relatives of PaddleYak staff were engaged in the Second WW and they are remembered today, particularly our fathers, Francois [Frank]Loots who saw action in North Africa, including at Tobruk, Sidi Rezech and Al Alamein and Richard Angless, who as a 19 year old, flew Spitfires and other fighter planes for the RAF. A near fatal crash on British soil ended his war, after which he emigrated to South Africa and became the Chair of the RAF Association.
