I’m in a convoy of more than 80 cabs, around a mile and a half long, driving through Holland. On board are 160 veterans, mostly men, some women. I’m with Jim Baker and David Evans, both 89, ex-marines. Keep trying to photograph the convoy, but difficult when you’re in it! Wonderful welcome from the Dutch this morning – media and the public – all waiting for us as we came off the ferry. People are lining the route, all ages, waving us on.
The Dutch police are brilliantly keeping the convoy together. Jim just said ‘now you’ll know why you can’t get a cab when you want one, they’re all in Holland today, doing charity work.’ It’s really wonderful.
