The shuttle bus from the camp to the town
Some of us crept off the early Mass at the Dom; a greater group gathered at the Lutheran St Martin's Church for a special memorial service. The re-enactors were present (as were members of the current-day regiments)
The musicians from the Minden Band of the Queens Division played.

We gather together to sign "Rolling Home" - it's traditional on our trips to Germany.
Back at the hotel, we saw a steam train pass through the station. Just like home!
In the evening we all went out to a restaurant. A convivial time was had, but the service was just so, so slow.
