Action again ?

Exactly one year after the start of the building of the framework, after a half year of making plans and contacting people we're ready to make a further step : getting the framework mobile on tracks !

In the meantime, a very generous private sponsor made this next move possible !

A first step was borrowing a real trackshoe as a model to replicate it.
Where else is this possible than from Philippe Gorczynski in Cambrai ?

And to make it complete : the framework attracted the attention of a British ex-RTR Chris Lock who is arranging everything with our help to place a Tank Memorial for the whole Ypres Salient in our own Poelkapelle. What a symbolic place and what a support for our own tankproject !

You can find out more about the monument to be erected at :

Both to be continued ...
