A huge thank you for our police escort from the Hook of Holland to Wageningen last Wednesday, and then back again on Saturday. As usual when we travel to the Netherlands for the Liberation commemorations, these journeys, with our precious veterans on board, go wonderfully smoothly thanks to the police who close the roads to allow our taxis to travel in convoy.
