Veterans Day, Aldbourne, England. November 2007.
#1

Hi everyone, these are a few photos taken on Veterans Day here in England.

This special service was held in the village of Aldbourne, Wiltshire where the 101st Airborne

506th P.I.R. were billited. Our Group portrays ' Easy' Company, 2nd Battalion. 506th P.I.R.

The Rev. John Railton was kind enough to hold this service for the Group in the afternoon of Veterans Day.

We had invited the US Ambassador to England, sadly he was not able to attend, but, he did send a Lt. Col. and three Majors

to represent him.
