Coming over in a Renault Master van empty except the wine:cool2: as a customer let me down with a load so if anyone had anything bringing back that they have bought over here on the Boncoin or other sites I can do so.

  3. I hope this thread will stay open here, so please keep it cool! Just for an update from the area, It has all the locals talking about how the Germans have taken the matter seriously 70 years later. As one said to me only this morning while delivering near there that its a shame France could not make the same effort. but This is now becoming old news because they are more interested in the François Holland scandal today
