But finding barrels and artifacts isn't obvious any more .
The good things which were found and were around, are in our museum, unrestaurated.(www.december44.com)
And of course, in front of the museum, Tiger 213, belonging to the village.
Be welcome.

December44 museum La Gleize.
I envy you your employment. I’ve visited the Ardennes (and at the La Gleize museum, of course) several times. Both the museum and King Tiger’s condition have improved over the last 30 years.
Keep up the good job.

Great photo, Peter! This was taken in August 1951 when the Belgian Army moved 213 onto a new pad where it sits today. Note the two US-made M32 Tank Recovery Vehicles (in Belgian service) in the background doing the winch work.

Best,
Greg
