    For a while now I have been watching a YouTuber series on the internet called ”Survival Russia”. The guy is Danish and an ex Danish combat engineer. He married a Rusian girl and lives out in the ‘sticks’ of Russia and shows how he lives his life out there, which includes visits to the old gulag and other abandoned Soviet sites etc. I came across this one very recently and it appears to be one of his earlier videos. He describes an experience with the Brit Squaddies when they came to Denmark. You’ll all remember we used to go there by ‘Troops’ when we were in Osnabruck. The video is interesting but the comments are well worth reading too. Will bring back a few memories.

    I recently came across these four animated videos explaining the four battles of Monte Cassino 12 January- 18 May 1944.

    The fourth battle is when the 4 Division Engineers build the bridges over the Rapido river to break into the Liri valley at Cassino.

    7 Field Company were involved in building two of the three bridges.

    The 4 Division also were engaged in holding the front line north of Cassino west of the Rapido valley in April 1944. 7 Field Company worked on improving and repairing the supply routes.

    The first battle:

    The second battle:

    The third battle:

    The fourth and final battle of Monte Cassino:

    Chris, can you get Rhys to look at the list of members. If you check the members list there are a lot of spurious names appeared on it again. Cheers

    Guys

    After talking to Bob on the phone about the fact that our Shiny 7 Association Facebook page could not be reached for the past couple of months Bob has fixed the issue. I suggested he put some money in the gas meter. I suggest we revert to this page for messages we wish to pass, of course the web site is unaffected. Would someone please try the link below and confirm it worked for them.

    Tragic to hear of Bob’s passing.  I am off to the Canaries tomorow and am unlikely to return before his funeral.  As a consequence can I request that condolences are passed on to Pat.

    Best Regards
