I'm begging you Oleg please!

During WW2, my grandfather was the deputy mayor of a town called Geraardsbergen. He was asked by the local pastor to fullfil that duty, since the original mayor (along with a good part of the townsfolk) fled when war broke out (mainly to britain as I recall).

anyway, I would *really* love to see a Belgian map (or Benelux map /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ). Belgium is a very small country anyways. Ofcourse, just a city would do fine! I would recommend Antwerp, since it was very involved in war. Meaning, it was largely bombed to scrap by both german and allied forces (the latter I am not 100% sure though).

btw: any comments?

Do you know geography?

ROFL...I too didn't intitally recognize this to be belgian, but when you ask for a belgian map perhabs you should know that Bastogne really is NOT in france.

My support to that map

btw, St vith, Bastogne... where the frontline of the battle in the ardennes in 44 and its Belgium
Gerrardsbergen does now have a little airport with grass rwy and a dc6 as restaurent. The place is closed most of the time (that was just as info)

I really don't recognize le walon (french part of belgium, as in southern part) as being belgium! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

that's why I ask for a town like Antwerp. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Then you should have asked for Vlaanderen and not Belgium!
Walonie and the French speaking Belgians are just as much Belgians like the Flemish wheater you like it or not!
Or do you consider the most famous Jaques Brel to be not a Belgian either because his name sounds french?
Or do you consider Qeubec not to be Canada because they speak French instead of english?
If so you must be one of those nationalist who don't see the beauty of having a bilangual culture! (Shame for you)

Did you know what happend to those natiolist Belgians who fought in the volunteer Waffen SS because the germans cleverly gave them the idea that they would recieve their own souvereignity after the war, they Convinced Both Flemish and Walon volunteers they would gain something in the new Reich but those natiolist where send to the Eastern front to fight and die next to eachother in the most horrible war ever!
regards Kees,

Btw, I rather have a map in the sunny Mediteranian then of the depressing Benelux i am happening to live in!

Flydutch take a chill pill and calm down

I see you are unfamiliar with the concept of sarcasm.

Ofcourse, and btw, I am belgian, I consider everyone as belgian. I just made that (misunderstood app.) joke to explain my embarrasment about the lack of knowledge about the town of Bastogne.

oh and btw; as a dutch citizen, and I do respect dutch citizens like all other citizens around the world, but you are hardly in a place to critize me.

I can say stuff about 'your people' that wouldn't make you proud either.

I only make yokes about Belgians, (Like Belgians make them about us Dutch)But consider Belgians usaly very sympathetic!

I just don't like nationalism.That is no joke!

Don't get me wrong but beeing a product of Dutch colonism i am aware that the Dutch arent perfect, who is?

Alee ti's maar een vlieg simulatorke!
