I have recently taken a 2nd post round and have to go to Margraten to pick up my post as the company is too lazy to deliver it t my door. On my first collection I realised I was passing the American cemetery in Margraten so as it was such a nice October day I decided to pop in and have a wander.
The Tower beyond which lies 8,301 WWII dead. ( The 2nd biggest USA memorial in Europe)

bones are laid but a home in the minds of men"
Including 7 Wades:
