Reich Duke Wilhelm of Beerstein's visit

It is King Leopold IV birthday and also the 3rd anniversary of his coronation. The Reich Duke has timed his visit well and will share in the celebrations. Below are some moments from the Reich Duke's visit.

  2. Those vignettes present a most fascinating aspect of the hobby (that I had never imagined a year ago in my pre-blogging days), and you are really one of the masters of it.

  7. Your vignettes are simply the best! The Grand Tour has seldom seen such a glorious reception. Your hospitality and generous efforts are most welcome. In recognition,Reich Duke Wilhelm has named King Leopold, Knight Commander of the Ancient and Honorable Order of the Tankard. Hopefully the king will accept this honor at court.
