If you look at the door in the centre of the wall, the wooden parts covering the windows, and the roll-down shutters, it is obviously that this is NOT Bergen op Zoom, not Arnhem, not Nijmegen just NOT Holland. It's either France or Italy.
My familie is from Bergen op Zoom and use to live at Oude Moerstraatsebaan.
It's near where Wasserij de Zoom and the Likeurfabriek were.
That's were 10FJR6 fought.
At the second floor one of FJR6 died and the bloodstain was unremoveble.
Believe me ALL HOUSES HAD WOODEN SHUTTERS LIKE THAT.
THEY ARE SOME SORT OF ROUND POLES HOLD TOGETHER BIJ FABRIC AND A BELT TO PULL THEM UP OR DOWN.
AND MAKE A TREMENDOUS NOISE
AND ALL OVER THE CITY CENTRE YOU'LL FIND OLD BUILDINGS.
Lievevrouwestraat,Hoogstraat,MARKIEZENHOF etc (TRY : GOOGLE ,MAP ,SATELITE , YELLOW MAN . And go down the streets yourself)
For the electricitystakes:I STILL REMEMBER THAT WE HAD THOSE.
THAT"S THE PROBLEM WITH HOLLAND .WE DESTROY EVERYTHING THAT"S OLD.A.C.E. van T. wrote:3rd ossible,but don't recognize anything
Again, the buildings, the wooden parts covering the windows, the fences, the electricitystakes you see...NOT DutchA.C.E. van T. wrote:4th ossible,if it's the West side of the Brabantse Wall they're facing
For Bergen op Zoom Region there are only a few places that are possible.
Nope. If you look at the buildings the "height" is to high and to steep for Holland. The only thing that comes a little close would be the Grebbeberg, and is in not, or the south of Limburg but then the forest is to long (left-right).
GOOGLE : RIJZENDE WEG WOENSDRECHT(Part of Rommels HQ Artillery was placed here),MAPS,SATELITE ,
Brabantse Wall runs from Putte to Steenbergen.Most part is Forrest and over 30meter hights
Sorry to say but NOT Holland for sure.
