The Road to Liberation - 12th December 1940

Updated: Dec 13, 2020


Good morning everyone


Still working on a new PC build that will hopefully help speed up my responses, but not going to lie it may also lead me to cyberpunk 2077 & call of duty. For the gamers out there I will post up our twitch account in the next few days and hopefully, we can have a chat online and play some games in the near future. For the non-gamers, we are going to try and use similar technology to host some online sessions during this second lockdown and Christmas. The plan will be to digitally tour some bunkers and chat. Will post up some info on that soonest.


All our social media accounts can be found here


Cheers

Phil
