    Default Operation Market Garden 2014 run an Impression

    Today we celebrate the 70th birthday of Operation Market Garden.
    From the Belgium border up to Veghel they drive the same route as the troops did 70 years ago.
    Over 500 vehicles and 1500 men, reenactors, voluntiers, enthousiastics etc make this a historical event.
    I have taken some pics to show you how hundreds of Vehicles look like, people were cheering & waving with small flags!
    Its a lovely event!
    Enjoy the pics
    Regards,
    Ger
