    Just back from a very warm weeks' holiday in Normandy and I managed to pick up a couple of pieces.

    I've often hankered after a British Army GS folding seat as seen in many photos of Monty's TAC HQ, and also in this famous photo...

    [​IMG]

    A very thorough rummage in the big Brocante depot at Bayeux came up trumps - it had obviously been 'picked over' ( especially in June ! ) but, folded up, I recognized this straightaway. Complete with remains of 'Army brown' paint, and stamped WD with broad arrow, GR VI and Crown, 'F. Wild Ltd 1943'........

    [​IMG]

    It's now in my collection...and it's from Normandy !

    ( The shellcases ? They're another story..... )

    These marks, and the location where I found the seat, make it a genuine Normandy relic......
