    I know Paul very well, and was with him at the start of his tours when he lived in Coucellette on the Somme
    Nice one, I wasn't aware he lived there, Canterbury now I believe

    Very nice. I just watched The Longest Day last night. Perfect timing.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    The Falaise museum was one of the best around until it went broke and closed
    You mean the one in the old cheese factory? It didn't go broke but after the death of the owner the whole collection was moved to a brand-new museum (Overlord Museum) on the D514 road, right across the American cemetery above Omaha Beach. The new museum is fantastic too.

    That's the one!

    I also remember passing many times the Tiger, left at the side of the road near Vimoutiers in the late 70's , Yes it was left there sinking into the bank, and no one took any notice.........if only I could go back in time

    Yes, the Overlord museum was outstanding
