    Le bureau national de Ladies Circle (national board) also presented the results of the fundraising for a project in Madagascar. See my Madagascar page, because I visited that project there in 2001.

    An enormous bunker houses a V1 and a V2 amonst other exhibits. A very well laid out museum with every explanation in English, Dutch and French. Headphones are also available.

    Clever models show how the bombs were constructed and assembled here, and there are clear explanations on all aspects of the war.

    Compact and very interesting Woulrd War Two museum housed in a large bunker. which was one of the seven most important constructions by the German Army.

    Models in uniforms, guns and ammunition, a small collection of tanks, mock-up of bunker rooms. Over 3000 objects in 10 rooms.

    They also sell various military paraphernalia.

    Outside you will see a K5 railway gun of 280mm caliber, caqpable of firing across to London! This is one of only two in existence, the other one is in the US.

    Park with fountain

    There was a park across the road from the clocktower with a really pretty fountain in it. There weren't too many people in the park, but maybe the fact that it was raining had something to do with it?

    Women from all over France came to the meeting. Even from French overseas territories like Réunion (in the Indian Ocean) and New Caledonia (Pacific Ocean). Oh and also from Burundi!

    Ah yes, that's me, addressing the meeting at the town hall. My speeches in French are usually short, but I am able to make a joke or two and even say things that I haven't written down. hehe.
