(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.
This is NOT a model.
We are fed of course.
Even Vincent, our knowledgeable Belgian Friend of the Timberwolves, gets something.
Frank was on the May 2010 tour with us. Super guy.
Nancy’s father Keith. He was actually young once!
Marcel with his wartime photo at 12 years of age.
Cliff was on the May 2010 tour. He has passed away since.
Beautiful countryside here.
On to Henri-Chapelle…
