    Default Militracks-Overloon 2016

    As so often it was crowded yesterday (Saturday May 14th),
    during Militracks at Overloon (Netherlands) at the area of
    the war-museum with many dealer-stands.
    Not much rain, lots and lots of visitors (over 6.500 it was said)
    and many great vehicles, riding through the woods.

    Some photos made by my friend Patrick Vereijken:

    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    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

    Yes indeed, when two major formations ran up that road each unaware of the presence of the other until "all hell broke loose"! I have visited Overloon when I was stationed in Rheindahlen just over the border but I never knew about Militracks. Maybe it began after I was posted beck to UK in 1999, oh that makes me feel old

    Had I known it was on this year I think I would have given my bike a run but too late now

    I hope someone will post on the subject

    Regards

    This special event is anyway runing since 2011, as far as I know
    and practically every year it is mentioned here at WRF!

    Well, that's me told!

    I have genuinely never seen any advertisment. I promise to make a note for next year
