    Great thread Ade.
    I really like these kinds of threads. They give a perspective that you can't get
    by watching the TV documentaries. Plus they are just plain entertaining, especially
    for those of us who will never be able to make the trip in person.

    Tell your friend she has a very good eye for taking pictures.

    myself around.

    Yes indeed, the photo's are very professional, i am very envious.
    I was in Dunkirk last weekend for the 75th Anniversary and also attended the Museum which was very good. I dont tend to take many photo's unfortunately, was good to see the image of the Dunkirk museum even though I was only inside it last week !

    Thanks for this thread, Ade. The museum exhibits in post # 13 are of particular interest. (For some reason, I especially like the painting of the assorted Warsaw Pact NCOs.) One of these days, I should really go to Dresden...

    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
