    That is such a shame, as I know it was hit 3 years ago by spring floods I think and a lot of the collection was damaged as a result.

    Are there plans to have anything back up for thge 70th anniversary of Dragoon next year? I hope so as I'm making the trip for the week and it would be nice to see.

    Whatever they go with I just hope that it was only the building that received damage and none of the items as they are not replaceable unlike the building!

    Hi Guys, it is my friends who run it, J. MICKAEL & ERIC.


    I did post some pics of the horror from the other year somewhere on the forum I think?

    This is their new website:

    Jon: I have been out there three times, well worth the trip. I have pics on the forum.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I've been once to Le Muy and La Motte and the surrounding region. I fell in love with the place and the fact that Op Dragoon took place there was just an added bonus!

    I think the 70th will be a good week down there and I'm hoping (work permitting) to take part in the commemrative march the French organise, I can't wait!

    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
