D. 10-11 august afholdes Militærhistoriske dage i Frederikshavn, og Baker Company deltager med alt det materiel, vi overhovedet kan komme afsted med. Se på kortet hvor vi er at finde, og hvad man i øvrigt kan opleve i området. Arrangørerne melder desuden, at der stadig kan nå at komme flere udstillere til, men allerede nu ser det ganske fornøjeligt ud.
On the 10th – 11th of August Baker Company will participate in MHD (a military history display event) in Frederikshavn. We expect to bring all the vehicles and equipment we can. The map tells you where you can find us, and what else is on display.
By the way, on the 10th-11th of August 1944, elements of the 2nd Armored Division were embroiled in repulsing “Unternehmen Lüttich” (the German counterattack attempting to stem the tide of the Allied breakout from Normandy (Operation Cobra)) near Mortain. It seems safe to assume that the men of the 2nd AD would have been studying maps such as the one below while engaged in that fight. We’ll display the map at MHD too, to give the public an impression of what the 2nd AD was up to on the same days 74 years ago.
