Peak Rail, Aug 2010, 69th Infantry Division

Post  Gina_Costina on Mon Aug 09, 2010 12:05 pm

GI44-45 attended Peak Rail, Derbyshire this weekend, and had the chance to pay homage to the 69th Infantry Division, during which we made the most of the chance to get a few photos with the excellent 2nd Guards Russian Living History Group, recreating the link up with East meeting West in 1945.

The weekend gave us a chance to dig in again, get dirty, fire a few rounds through the mortar and test out our new BD71 telephone exchange in preparation for Fort Amherst later this year. All in all a great weekend!































An opportunity to trade some Bastogne Cookies!

What a beautiful foxhole!
I hoped to visit you guys last weekend and ask some question on joining the group but I had some other things to do instead.
Some great pics there though with our Russian comrades. for some reason I would never of thought of such a great event to re-enact!
