Some of our forum members in action. Armor driving on pulic roads...always a treat

Delden's historic centre was returned to 1945 style...no "modern" cars allowed, people in period fashion and flags everywhere. Nicely done!

Rare T975....let's hope we'll see some Canadian markings on this one soon.

Here's another Ambulance Jeep in Canadian livery. Nice to see Jeeps in "other than 82AB Div" markings....

Amphibian vehicles can enter the canal at TWV in Hengelo. A lot of national and international guests expected.
Great video of the reenactment of the canal crossing: https://youtu.be/7SrKbGas_VQ

The Canadian military were present in the form of RCA troops. I pointed out to them that the truck I was driving was "Made in Canada", much to their surprise.

Wireless Operator of RCCS at RCA (5th Armoured) HQ in Groningen in April 1945.

I believe this was in the local School.

Not sure what the little armoured thingy is behind the chap in the pic.

... and they are working on a documentary - see "Give The Children Freedom - Documentary Preview" at https://vimeo.com/125496197. I feel this is well worth watching.

N.b.: all the current footage was shot at The Final Push event over the two weeks it lasted.
