Hi Mat,

Is this La Coupole near Calais? I intend to get there someday. I was lucky enough to visit Camp Dora/ Mittelwerk near Nordhausen last year. Being underground my photo's didn't come out very well. Fascinating but overwhelmingly horrifying place! The pile of wrecked V1's dwarfs anything in the UK. There are still some complete V2 preserved in the cold water but it is too dangerous to go look at them. There is no intention of 'recovering' them. I love all that D-Day stuff in Normandy did you get to see it?
