nice pics murph, loved the pic of manny, and the old guys. would have loved to be privvy to the conversation in the room once we had left.
think that might have been the high point for me, either that or pulling the slug trail off my chin and flicking 2 slugs off my scarf after waking up in the german trench line, lol.

Some great photos there guys! I'm very envious.

I couldn't get the photos on the second thread to load, though they worked fine if I opened them individually. Anyone else have the same problem?

Great pictures murph, especially the rather dignified one of me unconsious Laughing I think the highlight of the trip was the hospitallity of the French in general. It seemed that everywhere we stopped we were offered a drink and everwhere we went people waved. Anybody would think that we were the ones that had liberated them.
