I'm back!

I'm back from the trip! It was really good, and I learnt quite a bit from WWI on it.
We visited;

Hill 60
The Somme (Yes, all of it!)
Sanctuary wood
Menin Gate
Essex Farm
Vimy ridge


A French-British grave/massive memorial that I stupidly forgot the name of.
Lots of small cemetaries.
Langmarck (German)

And for those with interests outside WWI;

Omaha beach
Gold beach
Culville cemetary
Point du Hoc
Pegasus bridge
La Cambe cemetary (German)
St. Mere Eglise

Now I promised photos, but there was a problem... doh For some reason, my camera kept running out of batteries, and I went through 4 sets of them, so by the time we got to any of the WWI sites, I pratically had no batteries left, so sadly, I don't have many WWI photos :(.
Oh, and despite you much welcomed help, I never visited any model shops in Bruges in the end, because dodgey change lost me 10 euros,  (furious) so by the time we got there, I had no money left.

Never-the-less, I really enjoyed myself.

So I am giving a tour, on the forum. See the next articles...

Welcome back, Hugh.

Too bad about the photos. I know it's too late now, but with digital cameras it is a good idea to remove the batteries when you aren't using it. For some cunning reason, the geniuses who design the cameras have made them permanently on, so power is constantly drained from the batteries.
