Default 2 Box Break Horrors of War; Yogi

Ater seeing some of the great cuts pulled I couldn't resist these so I picked up two boxes from blowout on separate occasions.

First cut was George Douglas-Hamilton, Earl of Selkirk.

From his wiki page:

With the outbreak of World War II, Douglas-Hamilton joined the Royal Air Force. He served as Fighter Command's chief intelligence officer and the personal assistant to Air Chief Marshal Dowding. Douglas-Hamilton was also involved in countering the German task force operating near Ceylon.

Douglas-Hamilton was twice Mentioned in Despatches and awarded the Air Force Cross in 1938 and the OBE in 1941.

He succeeded to Earldom upon the death of his father in 1940, under terms of special remainder, his elder brother becoming the 14th Duke of Hamilton.

Second cut was Yogi Berra who joined the Navy when he turned 18 and participated in the D-Day invasion at Omaha Beach, served in North Africa and Italy, and then was finally stationed back in the States.

Most likely will keep the Earl of Selkirk card but I'm not a Yanks fan at all and would rather the Yogi found it's way to the home of a WWII collector / Yankees fan. Also, definitely have no desire to keep the base cards so if anyone is collecting those let me know.

Very happy with my results and with some of the most exciting hits still out there I may have to pick up a few more boxes...
