Britain's National Union of Seamen called off a ferry strike that disrupted passenger and freight service to the Continent, Ireland and the Scottish islands for two days. The end of the ferry strike came one day after hundreds of nurses staged a one-day walkout. Seamen's union officials agreed to call off their strike while appearing in the High Court, where the two main ferry companies--P & O and Sealink--are seeking to obtain an injunction outlawing the walkout.

My journey back to the battlefields of Europe where my father fought started with a phone call one afternoon last June. "This is Russell Murphy," the caller said. "I served with your dad in the war." I remembered, faintly, that "Murph" had been one of my father's World War II buddies. He invited me to go to France to dedicate a memorial to the men of their unit, the 29th Infantry Division, which had been part of the D-day invasion force at Omaha Beach.
