Re: From D-Day to V-Day / Expo in Belgium

It's a shame really, that it doesn't coincide with the fair at Ciney in April... Hi Ben, We have the opportunity to use the existing space of the 'For Freedom Museum' while the regular displays of the museum are being cleaned and re-organised. But in April the museum re-opens for the general public...

Re: 121st General hospital Bremmerhaven

In my research about the 29ID which was stationed in Grohn Barracks near Bremen in late 1945, I have found out that the 121st General Hospital was stationed in the "Lesum Barracks" (now called: gemeinnützige Anstalten FRIEDEHORST)and the St Joseph Hospital in Bremen http://www.history.hqus...
