Today is Anzac day in New Zealand which is when we reflect on the actions and costs to New Zealanders in the various conflicts our country has been involved in over the years.
On this theme, John Campbell on TV3 last night mentioned ‘Expedition Saharan Saunter 2009’ which is a group of Long Range Desert Group re-creators:
“We are planning an Expedition to follow the footsteps (or wheel ruts) of the brave men of the LRDG and cover some of the routes and battlefields in the western desert. This will be a dynamic site updated regularly to keep all informed of our exciting project.”
Sounds like a hell of a challenge to me and I’ll be interested to see how they get on next year!
