Hi Mucha, I cannot see your picture
that's odd, I could see it on my side. It was HUGE though - that may be playing a part. I took it a shrunk it down a bit, that might help. let me know if you still cant see it?
I think I know one of the dutch girls...
Come on Stefan tell us more... a war bride?
It works now Mucha, probably my computer fighting with gremlins , it's a nice picture of a Dutch patrol in urban fighting
This just too much!! LOL
You think thats bad, thanks to you I discovered this:

Nice to see some photos, including some of us
I am one of the Dutch civilians and member of the only, civilian only living history group in the Netherlands.
The civilian side is very much neglected at most reenactment events, its usually someones girlfriend in a cheap 1950s dress coming along for the weekend...
We take the civilian side as serious as some of the best military groups do.
Here is our groups official site;
Hello there!! Thanks for posting and the link. I agree that the civilian side is mainly neglected . Unless its the Resistance. But that seems to be the norm in most of the 19th and 20th century reenacting.
I met some of those Dutch bicycle troops at a Kirby Hall do once.
Lovely chaps... we fed them sausages all weekend.
Beltring's got Dutchmen all over it, they seem to be one of the primary 'Military vehicle nations'.
Again, most always really friendly.
Cheers Marloes, it is a great link. I particulary like the 2008 photo galery with the Dort commemoration and the old man firing the machine gun.
I wonder what shape their heads are to be able to wear helmets like those on post 20 :lol:
very nice! i can only see some of the pics, but i have a bad connection here is So Carolina! Anyway, thanks for the pics! You could tell them that to be really accurate with the bikes they would have rags for tires, as there was no rubber to be had.
My dad told me that!
There's a touch of the Dad's Army to them, even got a version of Pike near the back.
Minor flag alignment prob with this one;
