Today is our history day, and we're all dressed in our team shirts for the outing, gathered in the breakfast room.
Martin tells us about the context of the Battle of Minden from a British perspective
Our guide, Wilhelm (Bill) tells us more from a German perspective.
Then by car to the Denkmal (war memorial) where we laid roses
Grouped around the Denkmal
Flowers by the memorial plaques from a former barracks.
Roses in our colours
Bill describes the battle field to us.
Stopped in the middle of the battlefield - not much to see, but you can get a sense of scale.
Young people entertain themselves in other ways
And so, back to the town, to the Cathedral
Outside the Dom
It's dedicated to St Peter
The font and view up the nave
Impressive post-war stained glass
A replica altar back - the original being in a museum in Berlin
The apostle frieze
Bill telling us about it
Candles wafting prayers heavenwards
Time for a rustic lunch
Dale meets and greets the Green Woman
Back on the stage for out first performance today
The TV crew who missed us yesterday were much in evidence
Street Dance - Mel struts her stuff
Round we go
Martin lines the beers up for the band
The tiger leads the dash to the bar
but the rest of the band weren't far away!
That slips down nicely
Diana and Helen interviewed for TV
The Tiger too
Tiger interacts with street theatre
Second spot, near the Dom
The band on a street corner
Here we go
Ben does a solo - dancing trombone!
The end of the Rose
The newest band member
We gave a polo shirt to Bill, seen here with members of our support team
We had to share a beer in celebration
A rose in Minden
Now some went to the Tattoo, others to a pub halfway to Bremen.
