    Default Moving to Normandy!

    Well, finally I have found a farm in Normandy, and I getting the keys this week. In July I will move there! I started selling some of my collection to raise funds, a pitty to see some items be sold, but and the end of the day I did it and Im over the moon about moving to France, to Normandy! I found a large farm in a small village, very close to a forrest, and only a few miles form Sainte-Mere-Eglise. Thats teh village John Steele got his parachute caught on the church tower on 6 june 1944. Some locals have told me there is still a German Panzer in the forrest, only one mile from where I'll be living, so I must try and find it next week, as Im going over next week to sort some paper work out. Will stay there for one night in the farm, and will move there beginning of July.
    Cant wait, and I hope my Whites detector will find me some nice relics in the forrest once I'll be settled in there!
    Im renting the farm for the moment, but if I wish I can make the owner an offer to buy the property, if i decide to stay there for a while.
    If I find the Panzer, I' ll post some pictures here!

    Hello, I suppose the Panzer was buried in the forrest by German troops leaving in 1944, like Spitfires.

    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
