    Hello Ade,

    I'm seaching also in Beek-Ubbergen and Berg & Dal, in Beek was a very tough combat between US Para's and Germans who wanted to take back the road to Nijmegen. History is everywhere in this area!
    When you take a walk on the 'Duivelsberg' you can see the foxholes of the US para's. I even found Tree-carvings on old trees of US Paratroopers and British/Canadian soldiers!

    And Martyn, I find very, very much bottles in this area:P Sometimes i ask myself, what did the soldiers in this area going out or something?
    The nicest bottles are the Cider bottles from England, the decoration is beautifull. I will post it soon with some other stuff.
