Tanks in Town
We have Civil War reenactors, Belgium has WW II reenactors. This is an annual event in Mons where a bunch of people dress up in surplus uniforms, have an exhibition, then on Sunday evening drive their surplus vehicles (armor, jeeps, trucks, motorcylces) down to the Grand'Place. It seemed to be a mixed bag of Belgians, Americans, and Dutchmen. everyone was either a colonel or a tech sergeant. A band, dressed in 8th Air Force (I think) uniforms, played a bunch of Glen Miller stuff. Yet another cultural experience.
