Call of researches for trucks to bandages
Permalink   


HELLO to you all,

I am an owner of a truck with bandages Of Dion-Bouton of 1917.

In October-November, 2011, I made the route(course) with this truck of Nieuport ( Belgium) in Verdun that is more than 800 kilometers in the 3 weeks.
Thanks to my acquired experience on roads, I have a project for June, 2016: commemorate the Centenarian(Centenary) of the Sacred way, this mythical road which goes from Bar-le-Duc to Verdun.
Concretely, it is a question of establishing(constituting) a convoy of about twenty trucks with bandages of the Great War, completed by representative vehicles of this time(period) (ambulances, vehicles of Top management(General staff), connection, motorcycles) which will be a part of the route(course) of the Forehead(Front) with, in the end(final), the route of the Sacred way to go - return in June, 2016.

At present, I have about ten trucks with bandages registered on participants' lists.
Being in the middle of my objective, I issue for you an appeal to let me know if yourselves or in your relations know a truck of the great war (restored, rolling, in the course of restoration(catering) or not restored).
If you need further information either on the project of the Centenarian(Centenary) of the Sacred way, or on the former(old) trucks, do not hesitate to contact me on camion1418@gmail.com
SEE YOU SOON
In the pleasure
Dominique t to finish, see my blog: http: // parcoursdufront1917.wordpress.com/

Google translate does not always work well. What Dominique is saying when he refers to bandages is vehicles which run on solid rubber tyres.

Dominique, you may be better off posting on the HMVF forum

hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/forumdisplay.php

as many WW1 truck owners look there.
Good luck.
