    Great pics. Thanks for sharing.

    I have no doubt, that Allied forces also occasionally used TR vehicles, but are there any historical documentation for the 'borrowed' Kübelwagen?
    I wonder, if they modelled it after a pic or if the Kübel was just what they had?

    I recent that! Just because Ade goes to France seven or eight times (okay, so 65 times) in his Jeep, it doesnt mean, that he is an old timer!!



    Super! I was hoping for something like that.
    Man, you are fast out of the starting blocks with pics & info, thanks.

    Didn't know about the special remembrance weekend, thanks for the info. Last year I did the 25 km remembrance walk, you walk along al kind of army camp site's. There was a little village taken over by German re-enactors, I wonder what the locals thought of that. This year I will do the walk again. Hotels in Bastogne were al ready fully booked in september.

    Great to see those picks. My wife and I were there in 2004 for the 60th Anniversary. The did the parade through town during evening hours, though, so we didn't get great shots like yours! We plan on going in 2014 as well (after all, Bastogne is only 4.5 hours away from us). Thanks for posting.
