During the Franse Slag Mars people can walk past all the different places where the French army fought during 1940 against the German army.  The Franse Slag Mars is part of the Tourjours Kapelle week. During this week the fallen are remembered. Beside the different walking routes the museum was openend and a reŽnactment group showed how the soldiers lived and fought during the war. Our contribution was displaying radio's from the Second World War. We had the following items on display:
- WS 19 MKII (transceiver)
- HRO national receiver R106 MKII (receiver)
- BC611-F (transceiver)
- Murphy B40D (receiver)
- WS38 AFV (transceiver)
- Artillery loudspeaker No. 2 (field telephone)
- EE8-B (field telephones)
- SCR-625-C (mine detector)
- BC221 (signal generator)

We also had activities for children so they could experience how a field telephone worked and how morse code and receivers worked. It was nice to see how the children were interested in getting their morse code certificate for being a secret agent. This was a great succes and we are looking forward to next year.
