Market Garden remembered (Holland) (Large files)
Sep 20, 2009

Hello,

This weekend we remembered Operation Market Garden which took place exactly 65 years ago during WWII. There were many places with veterans from all over the world remembering their fallen comrads and to see, maybe for the last time, the places where they fought. At Arnhem they dropped a thousand men this saturday at the same location where the landings took place in 1944.

Dutch and British paratroopers jumped from Hercules planes from England and the US. Awesome to see. They also had a lot of old vehicles with re-enactors standing along the dropzone. At Nijmegen some old veterans crossed the river Rhine in Rubber boats like they did then. "It was a lot calmer and peaceful this time" one of them said.
Made some photos at Arnhem, hope you like them...

Cheers,
Ruud
