Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This our story and how we hope to raise funds for The Victoria Cross trust.
A 7 day trek across some of the Key moments of WW2
We will be traveling in our cleverly disguised German motor vehicle donned in British Camouflage.
Here is our itinerary, if you could just donate a pound it would make a massive difference.
Day 1 Saturday 16th September
Leave Blighty under the cover of dusk on an early tunnel crossing heading straight for Calais
Leave Calais head to the Nurburg Ring , brief stop to collect our much needed car decal 1st photo op of our new sticker 294 miles.
Head over to the Remagen museum, this is the historic crossing where the Yanks crossed the Rhine .33 miles
Then off to the first stopover for a well earned rest.
Day 2 Sunday 17th
We are heading to Colditz Castle but on the way we are doing a whistle-stop bombing run via the 3 Dam-buster dams
Sorpesse Dam 115 miles
Mohnesee Dam 17 miles
Edersee Dam 78 miles
In the spirit of our brave RAF pilots we wont be stopping just hitting the dams and off.
If we survive the raid we will head to our safe house in Colditz a mere 208 mile away.
Day 3 Monday 18th
Start the day with a tour round Colditz Castle before heading to the historic site of the Nuremberg Rallies, the Nazi party's main seat of power 180 mile.
retiring to our new home for 3 nights at Munich 103 miles
Day 4 Tuesday 19th
A morning visit to Dachau concentration camp,the first of its kind 20 miles
Back to Munich 20 miles
Day 5 Wednesday 18th
Off to Hitlers mountain retreat The Eagles Nest in Barchtsgaden on the Austrian border. 98 miles
Then return for our last night in Munich 98 miles.
Day 6 Thursday 20th
Early start 7am for our 5 hour drive to the Hackenberg Fort on the French Maginot line. A huge underground fortified WW2 bunker complete with its own railway. 309 miles
overnight stay in Veckring 2 miles
Day 7 Friday 21st
Wake and drive to St Quentin to see Rotherham's twin town on route to the V2 rocket site. This is where one of the most destructive if not impressive rockets was manufactured and launched by the Nazis. One of the most iconic uses of the V2 is obviously the birth of space travel. 260 miles
Onto our final digs in Saint Omar 4 miles
Day 8 Saturday 22nd
Our final day and a small trip to the Dunkirk Museum and the name Dunkirk speaks for itself 31 miles
from here the tunnel and home 301 miles

It's a big job but someone's got to do it.
