    Nice pics.
    Happened to meet 4 Polar Bear (elderly) reenactors and their jeep in a small pub in Herentals. (The jeep was of course not in the pub.)
    Coincidence or were there reenactors in Wuustewezel?

    Levien.

    This Belgium group do renactments relating to the Polar Bears. They were at the event I went to in Rijkevorsel on the weekend of 19/20 September 2009. They go all over apparently, so they might have had some members there.

    Welcome to the Spearhead site.

    Cheers - Robert
