Dublin, 1960

Wednesday July 27th, 1960. The first Irish Troops bound for the Congo marched through Dublin before boarding trucks at Broadstone which transported them to Baldonnell where U.S. Airforce Aircraft flew troops and equipment to the Congo. From “Under the Blue Flag” by Raymond Smyth. This photo and its description by a forumite known as D250 was found here.
