Saturday 10th May 2014. GI44-45 together with a crew of invited guests; like-minded living historians, recreated the Rhine crossing in March 1945 by the 79th Infantry Division, "Crossing the Rhine with the Cross of Lorraine"

Thanks to all the individuals and groups involved, and to Mark Almond and Gav Ware for kindly assisting with the pyro. Gareth Harvey from Airsoft action.

Great day, and good to work with people who are prepared to go the extra mile to make the experience a worthwhile one!!

Some pictures of the day- for the full album tab on any photo to take you to the photo-bucket album.

You guys were brilliant and thank you so much from Matt and I for letting us tag along, we're sorry if we took a bit of your time up but you were all so cool about it.

I'll stick up the pics I took for you in a short while and Paul, you'll have mail from me in the morning!

great pics btw. I've just been sent the gallery by Matt of his pics, i think you guys will be *very* pleased when you're on the cover in Smiths next month!

I'm just uploading my pics to photobucket. May have to play with the light levels in a few and i've not 'greyscaled' them but i'll link you to them and feel free to use any of mine however you want. I think Matt is going to be sending you some of his (much better then mine) pics!

Cover pic of our JUNE 5 issue.

Expect to find your faces staring out at you from the newstands of WHSmiths and many other stores on the eve of the anniversary.

Once again guys thanks for modelling for us.

They were taken on a proper period camera... The only thing digital is when I scanned the negatives!
