Toy soldiers, wargames and modelling madness.
MrsJ and I spent a couple of days there with the caravan a few years ago (en route to Waterloo) at a lovely council run campsite on the edge of town. Managed to fit in a trip round one of the Maginot forts while we were there. Nearly didn't get out of town at the end, as MrsJ likes to tow the van but forgot to drive on the right when turning left in the centre. A few horns honked and shrugs exchanged.
JoppyIs that the campsite on the other side of the river from town? We looked at the Aire (motorhome parking) nearby buy it was rammed.
That was the one. Very popular, even in May when we were there. I'll be bucking for a return visit sometime.
Montherme is where Reinhardts panzer corps (6th and 8th Pz Divs) crossed the Meuse in 1940. An assault crossing in rubber boats, they the built a footbridge where that last bridge in your photo sequence is and tried to take the wooded heights (and failed). Opposed by the 102nd Fortress Division.
Martin RapierIn deed. Given that this wasn't out first choice of stopover that night I was rather pleased to end up there! Those hills are no joke though, even with three and a half times the power to weight ratio of a Panzer 38(t).
