    Arrow Pics : La Gleize Show 2014.

    I've had fun visiting Continetal fairs in the past ( eg Carhaix, Arlon and Ciney ) and had long wanted to 'do' La Gleize, especially as it's in one of my favourite parts of the World. My wife and I needed a break, so I engineered a long weekend at an expensive Auberge which just happened to be ten minutes' drive from La Gleize ! Quelle surprise !

    Anyhow, early Saturday morning after a quick breakfast we were down the road in the wheeltracks of KG Peiper. Very good organization at La Gleiz - waved straight into a parking field and bundled into a (free) minibus up the hill.

    I'd heard that this fair was strong on 'rust', and it certainly was. Here's a selection of stalls and views..

    Those stalls went down that lane a very long way - right into the trees at the bottom.

    If you're into regalia and decorations, this show won't be for you. It was very good for vehicle parts, munitions, 'dug up' stuff, and other relics. Flavour of the month seemed to be relic Panzerfaust tubes, selling from 5 Euros for a bent/damaged one up to 100 Euros for good ones with triggers/sights etc ( but no markings ).

    I did manage to buy one or two bits'n'pieces...

    The S-Mine was 45 Euros...and I've been to the Museum before, so didn't go in this time. Although on the same morning, I visited my favourite kind of 'museum'...

    That's a nice KwK43 case.... Has a whole set... case and AP round with bodenzunder.... but the wife made me get rid of my collection. A nice complete S Mine wouldn't be too big though....
