This year in May I will go on a trip to these locations. Are there any militaria shops in or close to these towns?

 

If there are I would very much like to know of them  :)

 

Best regards Kristoffer

If you are still looking for shops: 

Between Arnhem and Nijmegen you can find Clements Trading/ Clements Militaria (clementsmilitaria.com), best contact them before visiting.   

Southwest of Nijmegen IMCS (imcsmilitaria.com) is located, I don't know if you can visit their shop.  

On 14/15 May in Overloon an event called Militracks takes place, there will also be a large militariashow.    

 

If you visit Bastogne I can also recommend you to visit the museums in Baugnez and La Gleize (La Gleize museum has a shop, ardennes44.com).

Hello Kristoffer,

 

I ran into this little Museum in the heart of Bastogne, it was pretty cool and free of charge, at the time at least ; ) 

 

The address it shows in Google is pasted below. I added a couple of pics to help give you an idea of it's location since it's pretty small.

 

Le Borges Musee,   Rue de Neufchateau 20, 6600 Bastogne

Thanks!

 

I am still looking for shops. I will be going to the museum in La Gleize so hopefully I find something in their shop. 

 

I will try and find that museum jmd62! It looks interesting. How was it? 

 

On another topic. While in Bastogne I would like to try and find E company foxholes. I have found some maps on the internet, are they easy to find?

 

Best regards Kristoffer

Hi Kristoffer,

It wasn't large, but it had a ton of weapons, uniforms, you name it and nicely displayed for a small museum. Just a fun place to visit if you're in the area to see the larger museums/memorials. I'm only assuming it's still open.

As it happens, I'm going to Bastogne in 2 weeks.  I'd like some info on the foxholes and such too.

I am back from my trip now. Had a great time! Saw a lot of things and picked up a few relics. I went to the Museum jmd62, it was worth a visit. 

 

Regards Kristoffer
