Thank you for sharing these! You live in a beautiful province; despite the horrors witnessed in these small towns I was amazed by the friendliness of the people and beauty of the region when I had the chance to visit and see where my forebears fought. Belgium is a lovely country and the Ardennes is amazing.

Always looking for medic helmets, 30th Infantry Division/Brigade items, and TOW missile items.

I used to live at 27 Val du Prince Kraainem in Flanders.

 

In 1963 they were building new houses and I found helmets, bayonets and live grenades.

 

When my father came home from work I was in the street trying to break open a clump of rust.

 

He realized right away that I was throwing a grenade against the street.
