Remembered Today:

Anyone visited the Guynemer Pavilion?

Just back from the Salient where we stayed at Varlet Farm.  By the way, the excellent host there, David, gave us a pass which we were able to use at several of the museums in the area.  Make sure you ask for one if you're staying in the area.

We saw the new museum beside the Guynemer Memorial in Poelkapelle but didn't get a chance to pay a visit.  In fact the building works appeared unfinished though I gather the museum is open.   

Worth looking at next time we're there?

Also visited the Mons Memorial Museum and St Symphorien which was more beautiful than ever.

Yes, I've visited this, and I thought that it was quite good; I'd recommend a visit.

My visit was in 2020, pre Covid, so I'm interested to see that the building work hasn't been completed yet! It wasn't open to the general public then, but Leger had arranged a visit as it was part of their "Above the Battlefield - The Air War" tour, as it still is. The building work seemed to be external, as inside it was all fine.
