Roger Martin and his Father Jim “Pee Wee” Martin in the Netherlands

• CATEGORIES: Features, International, Museums

UPDATE: Roger called me to provide a little additional info. First, the “young lady” with whom Jim is shaking hands is actually the Prime Minister of Defense for the Netherlands. Apparently, there were numerous other dignitaries and security was tight. 

I’m taking a break for the night, but don’t worry. Roger Martin and his father Jim “Pee Wee” Martin have been busy in the Netherlands. Roger’s father was invited over to participate in some WWII events and visit numerous museums. I can’t say exactly which photos go with which musuem, but they are still interesting to look at. Thanks for all the photos Roger!

Jim meeting the Prime Minister of Defense for the Netherlands.

Saint Thomas Windmill (as best as I can tell). The windmill was damaged (as were many in the Netherlands during WWII). It wasn’t restored until 2011.
