Driving south from Delft to the Belgian Ardennes we braved some quite narrow and hilly roads (for a 3-ton van) to divert to La Gleize. There are several museums focussed on the 1944/5 campaign in this part of the world but this one is a real gem. That it's in a nice (at least in the weather we experienced) spot is a bonus. What it must have been like in the winter of '44 hardly bears thinking about. Recommended if you are in the area. The photos appear in a rather random order. Above - the view from the adjacent churchyard.
Attached to the museum is the Great War memorial.
Inside there are lots of displays like this. Most of the kit and quite a few of the uniforms were sourced locally. Many were found in an attic and were nearly thrown out!
Outside. This chap had bagged the best parking spot - but I didn't feel inclined to argue.
The Command Bus meanwhile was squeezed into a space in the square.
This dodgy fellow was spotted near the Tiger B.
More of the vast array of stuff.
The rather lovely church.
The Tiger had taken a few hits!
