    Sadly, the farmer was a collector as well. He wants to keep the boat, it came into his hands about the same time a Sherman tank crashed through his wall and almost ended up falling through the floor into the cellar!

    The tank barrel belongs to a different farm. I found that one land owner has an original DUKW in his barn.... we had to dance around it during a party, it really was in the way.

    Cheers, Bill.

    I think the bombed out church in the second photo from Kleve could be (loosly guessing) the Stiftskirche. It is hard to say though as that area is covered in churches. Also, a lot of time pictures showing "Kleve" actually show villages in the Kreis Kleve, or those that surround Kleve, like Materborn, Donsbrueggen etc.
    If you ever bump into some photos of crash-sites, let me know. Danny
