Hi Frederick and Dave,

Thanks for looking in. I was a very interesting visit. I should also have mentioned that we took a trip down to the War Memorial at the Albert Canal to pay our respects and view the area where the war started. On the way back from Antwerp we also stopped briefly at the Battle of Waterloo site. As always with any trip there is never enough time to get everywhere.

Cheers

Al

Someone had made an edit to the feature and that resulted in the feature not being reachable. I have corrected the issue and it should be as expected now.

Darren,

I'll add an article on the Artillery Museum visit later when I get a chance to re-size and sort the pics.

Would be cool if the photos could include captions, but otherwise, good stuff.

Hi Christophe,

And you too. The painting tutorial was very interesting.

Hi Arno,

Yes a straight forward journey. Thanks.

Hi Jesse,

Thanks for looking in. Not really a caption person, a skill yet to be developed.


Cheers guys.

A great time was had by all. Fantastic hospitality from Graham made the day a success. Only regret was missing the sculpting session. I enjoyed giving a scracthbuilding display however. Roll on Telford.

Oh yes, I have changed from George Moore to Wellsbourne. Due to some log on issues, namely forgetting ALL my details.....another sign of age overtaking ability.

New items on display will be

If you are thinking of going along email Graham at
