    Kevelaer is about three miles from Weeze, you will notice on these first two pictures that the windows on both buildings have not changed.
    Our original WW2 bicycle is in the same spot as the Sherman tank.

    The third picture was taken two shops further down the street.

    The ones in German uniform were not my group, but I will post some more for you later, I am sure the Leipzig group will not mind.

    Cheers, Bill.

    There has been a lot of interest about the "War Walk" using Wehrmacht uniforms through the streets of Leipzig in Germany.

    Here is the link to the photos on the German language forum where you can see the rest of the pics. Beate and I helped get this forum up and running in its early days, with our friend Sven who lives in our village.
    Therefore when we got someone to make up the banner at the top of the page, you will see Adrian Stevenson on the left in Russian uniform

    Here is the link to the Leipzig pictures......
