Visit to Arnhem

I have just spent the (long) weekend with a bunch of lads that, in most cases, I hadn’t seen for over 35 years. It certainly brought back memories and was a lot of fun.

Of course there was a serious side to the weekend; remembering the fallen of Operation Market Garden which took place 17th – 26th September 1944; the subject of the film ‘A Bridge Too Far’
