I took a day of work so that Pius Floris could kill my tree.
This gave me time to take more pictures for you.

These are collected in a temporary gallery for this date, but
they are also added to the appropriate theme galleries.

Diezebrug and factory

In October 1944 the British tried to take this bridge unscaved.
Unfortunately a group of them managed to cross the bridge when they where cut off by German tanks Sturm Geschutz IVs, if I remember correctly.

They fled into factory shown in the left of the picture, from which they eventually escaped to the other side of the river.

After the tanks pulled back across the bridge the Germans managed to blow up the bridge.
