I visited this exhibition of tanks in Town Mons Belgium, and it was indeed very interesting, especially for the young people to give them an idea of what was the entry of the american forces liberating that part of Belgium ,on their way to Brussel, and at the same time the many divisions fighting though the country. I took not long to liberate the whole land.

A few days ago a lot of old army vehicules, organized by the Indean Head,were received in my town Rochefort, and the responsible of the town council have organized a nice ceremony at the monument and a big crowd was present. Those taking part in the demonstration received refreshments and food in the arts centrum. We will remain ever thankful to those who came overseas to clean occupied territories from the Krauts.We are also thankful for those who show gratitude to allied troops, with their splendid remakes, in perpetuing the souvenir of the dark days. Best regards to all.
