Jersey , Channel Islands

Postby Andyb » Mon Jun 25, 2018 3:01 pm

Hello all, I know I posted jersey on the last forum , but just been back for a long weekend and realised why I love it so much , Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and it was the most fortified by the Germans in Ww2 than anywhere else in Europe , unfortunately when the Germans invaded the island , the British made no attempt to take it back . So for all you German nuts , there are all the gun emplacements, bunkers , hospitals etc all in tact and the Channel Islands preservation group are slowly restoring some of these places as museums, so are even been used for other purposes. So as well being a beautiful Island, it is steeped in history.

Over the time I will do little pieces , but here are a few photos to get your taste buds going , it’s one of the original gun emplacements which has been turned into a museum. All the artefacts are original and in mint condition. The owners grandad went around the island after the war and just helped himself , and he still has a barn full of other pieces and equipment etc just sat there , not on show :ympray:
