Greetings all!

I am new on this forum and i would like to introduce myself briefly. Besides being Belgian (Flemish) and 42, i have always been interested in the military and warfare, especially the Great War. I have been in the army for over 14 years as a helicopterpilot and i am a veteran of the UN-operation in Somalia in 1993.
I have been reading on this forum for quite some time but only registered recently.
Since i have no 1/6th scale items worth posting (yet), i'd like to contribute by showing some WW2 graffiti i found recently in the dark bowls of a bunker of the Atlantic wall in Northern France. Some are more or less hidden behind modern graffiti (a shame really) but i still hope you like them.

I wonder who W.C. might be.... wink

Greets from the lowlands, Wim.

Greetings VBZ
This looks like the exact shore bunker used in a TV historical documentary; I'm sure it was a BBC series hosted by 2 Scottish guys; cant recall the name of it! maybe someone can recall the name..

Hi Wim,

Glad to meet here a fellow Fleming. Very Happy

Thanks for the pics.
They're very beautiful but it really is a shame that some of the markings and drawings are hidden behind that graffiti.
