So sorry it's been a long reply, but many thanks for the superb images.

I have been there many times over 30 years and always find it a super place with original guns etc...and Memories of my Dad....My Hero!!!

My Dad was in the Western Desert in the 8th Army, fought across Sicily and across to Salerno, Italy, then recalled back to prepare for D-Day. He landed on Sword Beach on the afternoon of June 6th 1944, fought up through France, Belgium and Holland then with Mont's 21st Army Group crossed the Rhine at Wessel and into Germany....recalled back to the UK in 1945 as the war ended.


Best Wishes & Thank you...Desert Rat
