pictures from NUTS weekend Bastogne 11-13 december


Recommended Posts

HI guys,

 

want to share some pictures of last weekend in the Ardennes where the annual NUTS weekend was held. I only made a small selection because i already posted a topic once with all the musea in the area.

 

This year the 38th historic walk was done and you can choose to follow the 501PIR Geronimo route for 7, 14 or 22 km. We choose the 14km. It goes from Bastogne trough the forrest to Foy and Noville. you do this walk with hundreds of people. Sometimes a jeep passes or you see reenactors in the forrest.

The bastone Barracks, which is normally open on special times and you will get a tourguide was now open all day. Constant coming and going of military vehicles and reenactors. The displays that normally held mannequins were now traded by real people who were doing there thing

Thank you for sharing. The only thing missing was the snow.

 

Nice gesture at the cemetery. I was brought to tears when I visited there.

That looks like an interesting event to attend, thanks for sharing. Lots of the pictures look like they could be from 1945 if they were in black and white. Maybe someone with more computer skills want to try it?
