Timberwolves Europe 2013, Margraten NL and Henri-Chapelle BE American Military Cemeteries. 6 May. Part II.

[Categories: TRAVEL, PHOTOGRAPHY, EUROPE, WWII]

(See previous posts for what this tour is about.) (As always, click on photos to enlarge or play movie.)

Sunday we continue to the Remembrance Museum in Belgium operated by the M&Ms (Mathilde and Marcel Schmidt) and the Henri-Chapelle American Military Cemetery in Belgium.

The Remembrance Museum is another outstanding collection of WWII items not to be missed by the inveterate historian. Marcel personally made all the mannequins used in displays, constructed a fake tank, and built a full-size wood model of a V2 rocket! Mathilde is a national treasure in her own right.

On to Henri-Chapelle…
