    Hi Rudeerude.
    Again a lovely set of pictures, which I think would have been a hard match because time hasn't stood still. The once small conifer growing at the back of the shed 66years ago is now a 20m monster with huge branches drapped over the wood shed hiding it until your almost upon it. You've made a good job of it, Thank you.

    Good to hear from you again, that was one great show you went to and I bet a good time was had by all. Although I would have loved to have gone in person, your photographic tour is so detailed with many fine pictures that I feel I was almost there, you've captured the atmosphere. Thank you for posting them.

    Hi rudeerude.
    Thanks yet again for that another superb picture amalgamation, I had to look really close to see where the 40's ended and the noughties began. Im sure your picture would look great hanging in that hotel foyer.
    Cheers

    Sorry Adrian, I'm very busy and I made over 300 photos that I will post step by step.

    For the beginng: We drove early in the morning from the german Hunnenrücken to the Mosel-valley down to Luxembourg and right up to Bastogne.
    It was cold, misty and last week we had 40cm snow.

    At 9 o clock we reached the army barracks of Bastogne and looked at the vehicle-display:

    a nice Sturmgeschütz






    a Churchill in the Ardennes, not so often to see



    The usual Shermans, short and long barrel



    Mathilda right from Africa

    nice Halftrack


    And a lovely Staghound



    A nice display in English











    American light wight



    German Jäger-Power


    Stuart with harvester





    Than we went to the Nuts-Cave where nice displays could be seen

    Command post

    General Mc. A. in his office



    The famous Christmas-Dinner


    Thick german throwing-power

    No good place in these days



    and again the hunter of the ambush



    Afterwards we went outsides because the vehicles were waiting to bite the snow





    We went into the direction to Recogne


    and marched

    to look after our bad heroes which died too in the Ardennes


    A column of the actors was formed here,
    leaded from a Sherman



    and followed from a Jäger in his back, must have been a strange feeling





    Nice little snow-mobile

    The rest of the column




    A hard fighting between the Germans in Cobru and the Americans in Recogne was expected
    Cobru Map | Belgium Google Satellite Maps

    The first units arrived and made their emplacements



    The still international column made its way through the narrow streets



    Its very amazing that in these villages nothing had changed for nearly 70years






    The old church at Recogne


    where an aid-station for the americans was emplaced










    Rest will follow

    Alex
