Airbourne Rememberance 2021

In order to remember the anniversary of operation Market Garden in 1944 every year there are parachute droppings at the heath at Ginkel near Arnhem in the Netherlands on the third weekend of September.
Here are some pictures I took this year.


Thanks for those Tom

I've been to Arnhem a few times, but never during the remembrance ceremonies. First time I went was my first trip abroad. I was 10 or 11 and a mate at primary schools mum was Dutch. I later found out she was from Nijmegen and his father had met her during the liberation. I went over with them during the Easter break. Been back a few times since and it still sends a shiver down my spine.

Lest we forget

Doesn't it just!  :-\

I took many opportunities to visit the various sites in Holland while working over there, and every one gives you that tingling feeling down the back of your neck.
