A long-cherished wish was fulfilled. On Saturday 12 August 2017 we went to Diekirch in Luxembourg to visit the National Museum of Military History. I have often heard that this is a very interesting war museum where much can be seen. Indeed, we looked out our eyes. By means of dioramas on a scale of 1: 1, fighting scenes of the great battle of the Ardennes 1944-45 around Diekirch and the living conditions of the civilian population and the military in the war are depicted. We were just on time because it seemed like a major renovation is coming. Afterwards, we visited the American war cemetery at Hamm, where there is also the grave of General Patton.
My wife Elly watching the imposing Patton tank that is displayed at the museum. This tank was used during the Korean war 1950 - 1953..
Part of the terrain was not accessable because of the reconstruction of the museum. Through the gate I took this picture from military material that was no longer included in the exposition.

Jeugdige belangstelling voor het museum in Diekirch.
