Operation Market Garden Route North, 22 September 2019. We were with the T57K only a very small part of the memorial rally of one of the biggest operations in WWII, but it was extremely interesting to cross all the bridges on our way to a bridge too far at Arnhem. The public was present in thousands and showed their gratitude by dressing up in contemporary clothes, children dressing up as soldiers, people parking their veteran cars on the kerbsides and not at least, they were yelling, singing and waving.

T87Suchy

From Czechoslovakia came the sad news that Bohumir Suchy has passed away.  82 years old, he closed his eyes on February 7.  A former Skoda dealer and former mayor of the village Novy Saldorf near Znojmo, in southern Moravia, he organised rallies in the Znojmo area but also attended the Tatra Freunde International rallies frequently. With his camper and a T5 7sport on the trailer, he travelled far and even attended rallies in the Netherlands on several occasions. During the last years, he used his two-tone green T 87 more.
