Hi Carleton

Great job, thanks very much for taking the time to share your project with us. Good, evocative photos from Normandy as well; the poppys for the last photos didn't go unnoticed.

Cheers
Gordon

I think it's so cool that there were so many jeeps on that beach that nobody's stood out! That hasn't been seen since 1944 or so. :P
Is it true real Jeeps have flat fenders?
Alone cannot you it resist!

Thanks Guy, join the Tilly club theres lots of friendly advice, or contact me before the larger shows and we'll have a beer.

Ralph thanks for that, it was indeed extremely thought provoking going to the American and British cemtaries.
