Goodbye

Re: PC Series: Feldgrau: Kafka on Trial

I don.t know what this has to do with Kafka, but the music (as all others by André Rieu) is certainly enjoyable.

Re: Non-Commissioned Officer progression ca 1944

Hello again,
Just had a flashback. There was indeed a Regimental or Divisional training set up in Apeldoorn in about December 1944, but it was of course abandoned early 1945 when the Canadians crossed the Ijssel river and created a pocket.
This is not an ironclad memory, just a "flashback".
