Arrsers self taken photo collection.

The location of the action where Lance - Sergeant John Baskeyfield VC of 2nd Battalion The South Staffordshire Regiment earned his decoration on 20th September 1944 in Oosterbeek.
The photo was taken last year, couldn't get over this year because of the Covid situation.
Seventy sixth anniversary, thought it would be appropriate to post it.

Also agree some fine pics ... I see you to invested in an Aluminium lid for your BCB Crusader Cook Set ,,, we probably got them from the same supplier ... makes a big difference to boil time .

I've just read his citation; what a guy!

Yes, some guy from e-bay; great job too. I've a big 'lacky band that fits round it all and keeps it tidy.

I've had some use out of that this year and will no doubt get lots more; I spend quite a few weekends away photographing long ultramarathons (when corona' isn't stopping them) and it's great to be able to boil water for a brew or pot noodle over a long weekend in the middle of nowhere.

It's a shame they don't automatically come with one and the plastic one you can buy melts if you leave it on while boiling your water.

Mine was E Bay sourced ... he makes quite an array of lids and are a good quality product . .. I too use a huge 'lacky band and cannot understand why the as supplied Cooker is made with a " crappy " plastic lid which so easily melts .

Saw this on the balcony of my holiday flat. At first I thought that the twig was defying gravity, but the explanation was quite simple. A certain member of the arachnidae no doubt got a surprise when it investigated this.

Went to see some stones in Ballindalloch today some of which were on the golf course, to get to them I wandered through the distillery and saw this in one of their out buildings.
