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’
At the Engineers Monument Driel; the place where they got the Airborne survivors out across the Neder-Rijn
Airborne Square Memorial on the north side of John Frost Bridge, Arnhem.
The Main Remembrance Ceremony at Oosterbeek
The children of Arnhem and surroundings laying flowers at the graves of the fallen.
