    Nice one, Gordon, now we know why he is always at the doctor’s. He’s a businessman through and through!!

    I’ve put together some photos and clips of the BHT Trail we have just done.  I’ve got loads of footage to put together on film, 7 Field Company’s works and contribution to the war in 1918. That will follow in due course.

     

    Don’t forget your 5 a day. Stay safe and well.

    Hi Geordie. I think the problem is there are only 17 members on this site so it is not getting a lot of use. Maybe posts like yours will wake a few people up and get more people using it.

    A couple, both 78 years old, went to a sex therapists office. “What can I do for you?” asked the doctor.

    The man said “will you watch us have sex?”

    The doctor was a bit puzzled but agreed.

    When they were finished the doctor said “There’s nothing wrong with the way you have sex” and charged them £50

    This happened for several weeks in a row. The couple would make an appointment, have a good session of sex without a problem, pay the doctor and leave.

    Finally the doctor asked “Just exactly what are you trying to find out?”

    “We’re not trying to find anything” replied the man. She’s married so we cant’ go to her house. I’m married so we can’t go to mine. The Holiday Inn charges £90. The Hilton charges £110. We can do it here for £50 and get £43 back from BUPA

    The new Google Earth mapping system gives a good overview of Roberts Barracks as it was about 2 years ago. Type in, An Der Nette Heide Osnabruck. There’s a lot of building going on inside now, mainly to left and right of inside main gate and behind our old block by the swimming pool. Unfortunately, you can’t place the little man anywhere, this system is inop. Also good for anywhere you wish to have a look at.

    George, thanks for the link, ver, very interesting and so poignant as we come to the end of the Black Horse Trail, later next month. After Osnabruck, this looks like another great tour, can’t wait.

    Well, have just got back from Auf Wiedersehn Pet land with the 3 Geordies. Thanks for a great trip, non stop laughter from start to finish.It was great to visit Osnabruck again, mind you nothing was the same, did a tour round Roberts Barrack, most of the blocks are still standing, except for the two we lived in, that says something I think. Will post photo’s and a film of the bararracks when I can get them downloaded. The main reason for going was obviously to see the place again but to visit the Osnabruck branch of the RBL for their weekend. We were right royaly greeeted and made most welcome both the Saturday and Sunday, so much so that the Association flag was flown on the Sunday main event day.

    Absolutely fantastic George. I remember the Chemin de Dames from our visit in 2014. Have we ever ‘done’ this cemetery? There are a few shots on here that ring a bell

    Hi Brummie, I don’t need a lot of space for next year’s display as it will be a general display and not covering a centenary year. Thanks for your hard work and keeping us updated.

     

    Found this video, it relates to an area we will be covering on this year’s Black Horse Trail 1918-2018. The major’s story took place on the right flank of the 50th Division at that time. (7 Fd Coy were in 50th Div at this time)
