do you have read Daily Thelegraph's article on Vitoria?

I need some help from the UK.

Last weekend an article was published on the Telegraph by travel journalist Anthony Peregrine on the battlefield of Vitoria and the bicentenary but I can't find it on line!

Anyone has kept it and would be so nice to scan it for me? Thanks a lot!

Peregrine [nice pseudonym for a traveller] comments if all armies were bike-borne war would end tomorrow and forgets
the Japanese conquest of Malaya and Singapore 1941-1942, better know as the Bicycle Blitzkreig. Not within the scope of this forum but google covers it well.

Nice article otherwise.

I think it is his real name!! And yes I thought as well when I first read it at WWII but at the british paratroopers in Arhem who had some bycicles.

Any way my propuse of sharing it is invinting you to come! Spring is lovely time here and there are many cheap flights, it can be a nice weekend holiday!!
