    So for two consecutive years, the British have tried in vain to land at Arnhem. So now we decided to take advantage of the tactical situation and we successfully invaded England. We landed on the greatest target in the world: London.

    As you can see, we were very successful targeting the Queen:

    But the British threw everything at us.

    They first tried to kill us by driving on the wrong side of the road..

    Green barrets could not scare us.

    Royal guards are no match...

    We even survived the wildlive... 20161017_0221.jpg

    And then came the Royal Navy. But we're Dutch and the English will never beat us at sea..

    In the air it went very well for us and we got ourselves a Spitfire...

    Finally we ended up in the hart of the Empire, the jewel of the Commonwealth... Hendon, where we finally met with the British Airborne Division....

    Had a great time, with Karl and Terry!

    Great story Marcel. I believe you about the wrong side of the road drivers. I almost got taken out in front of the queen's house

    Won't argue about the scenery Shinpachi :) London is a great city to visit. So much to see, so much history, never boring.

    Great shots. Brings back a lot of memories: toured the Belfast and had a nice talk with a Bishop outside on the upper deck at St. Pauls
