One of our loyal followers, Lloyd White has over the years build an impressive collection of Jeeps and he is still on the outlook for more versions. We have received some images of some of his Jeeps and I am sure that Lloyd is a familiar face to many other collectorsi, especially in the US. Go for a visit to "The Lloyd White Collection"

One of our team members is a

collector of WW2 related collectibles.

We have visited his impressive displays in his home bar (JOE's BAR), build in his very safe and secure bomb shelter below his house. Even though it might look a bit congested, he emphasize that he is not even close to the limit of what he can fit in of collectors items. As long as they are safe, I will keep looking out for more artifacts from the WW2 time.

Reprint of orignial D-Day maps

When you think of WW2 warfare, you think of intelligence and mapping enemy positions, obstacles and other relevant data that would allow the attacking forces to be as prepared and be as succesfull as possible for a coming attack.

These data were sourced and maps produced by special units that used any source or method to get as precise data as possible as it was all a matter of life and death for the attacking forces to get all correct and relevant data included.

 

One of our friends and followers in the US, Tim, has specialized in finding these old maps from D-day and and have them reproduced. This allows the owner of the map to actually go back to the location of the battle and "reconstruct" and imagine what the attacking forces had faced during their attacks and in same cases locate long forgotten defence positions.

 

When knowing the history, you are able to conclude how precise these maps were....knowing that the defending forces did everything in their power to hide, camouflage or even build fake defending positions to trick the enemy, it was a challenge at times and the resistance was an important partner in enemy land.

 

Visit: www.ww2dday.com and see if there is a map that would fit in to your collection. And dont forget, no WW2 vehicle should go to Normandy without a WW2 map to give the visit an extra dimension.

 

JUNE 6th 2019 - MARKING OF THE 80 YEARS ANNIVERSARY OF THE D-DAY LANDINGS.... "See you on the Beaches"

 

2014 was the year of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day Landings in Normandy. Not only did it

bring the Heads of many Allied nations to the western part of France to mark the

Anniversary, but also thousands and thousands of re-enactors in their vehicles and

vintage aircrafts invading the old battlegrounds to salute and pay respect to not only

the veterans that had gone to the, once so bloody soil as their pilgrimage, but also to

pay respects to the thousands of civilian and military lives lost during the violent

months of 1944.

 

Parades, exhibitions and re-enactments kept the region busy and, as always, all visitors

were greeted and taken care of and appreciated by the locals in the most friendly

manner.

 

2015 was the year of the unconditional surrender of Europe in 1945 and different

events were held during the year in all regions. Worth taking a "Tour-de-YouTube".

 

The classic "Black and White" house at Adam Park no 17, burned down during the heavy fighting in February 1942 The digging team, led by Jon Cooper from Glasgow Univsity hope to find exciting artifacts from the time prior to the surrender and from the following period where the area was converted in to prison camp.
