NUTS weekend at Bastogne Barracks

Greetings!

I and the running Panther of the Musee des Blindes in Saumur (that if you remember was the poster boy for this year’s Tankfest), will be participating in the NUTS weekend of the Bastogne Barracks War Heritage Institute.

On 14 and 15 of December, the Panther will join the Sherman Jumbo ‘First in Bastogne’ and other vehicles from our collection in a number of dynamic demonstrations at the Vehicle Restoration Center – War Heritage Institute / Bastogne.

The Panther will also feature in the official ceremony on Monday 16 December at the Mardasson Monument, together with our Sherman Jumbo as a symbol of reconciliation.

This will be the Sherman Jumbo’s first-ever attendance and is currently receiving the last restoration touches for the NUTS event. I got to see it 2 months ago when I visited the Bastogne Barracks and its condition is impeccable!
