Bonjour et bon courage pour votre restauration.
je termine la mienne avant l'été.

Passez nous voir l'année prochaine en Juin 2014 à Carentan, nous mettrons à l'eau lors des commémorations officielles nos GPA (à ce jour une bonne dizaine de GPA), avec une mini-bourse d'échange spéciale pièces de GPA entre nous pour clôturer la journée.

Avec votre GPA, cela fait pas moins de 20 GPA en France.
tenez nous au courant de votre restauration.
Cordialement.
Philippe.
