Visit "JOE's BAR",

 a WW2 collectors Paradise...

 

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.

     2015 - 70th Anniversary of the End

     of World War Two

       This year, events will take place around Europe to mark the  

       unconditional surrender of the Nazi regime.                                                          

       Last year was 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.

 

       Now is the year of the unconditional surrender of Europe in 1945 and different

       events will be held during the year in all regions.

       

    

                                                                                                                                      

 

 

 

      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.
