    Just an update , i visit this museum a number of times a year whilst Guiding Tours , it is a superb privately owned museum and is the only one in the Ardennes that shows the British involvement during the Battle of the Bulge fighting in cooperation with American VII Corps. The new Bastogne War Museum which was built with 19,000,000 Euros of pubic money is causing many of the smaller and in some cases better Museums to become very squeezed on visitor numbers so please wherever you are from move off from Bastogne and BOB and pay a visit to La Roche , we need to keep all the Bulge museums going !

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Ah I see, didnt go into that museum near Mardasson Memorial, just went to the memorial itself

    Didn't go to Hotton unfortunately, went everywhere else ! wasn't aware of the 53rd Welsh memorial until afterwards !!! will have to revisit, i want to go back in 2019
