    Forever in your debt

    Commemorationstone at the museum

    Favorite thing: Thanks for the few days of liberation ... thanks for the returned hope for a permanent freedom ... thanks for fighting for us ... we will be forever in your debt.

    Fondest memory: At the Airbornemuseum there is a commemorating stone that is from the airborne-troops to the people of Gelderland and I always let some tears when I read it. It says: "We came to you and you welcomed us in your houses. But we later left you, in the ruins and to the mercy of the enemy. Still we are welcomed here every year with open arms."
    Thanks ... just for being such great guys and indeed, you are always welcome here!

    Keeping the memory alive

    Not one of them shall be forgotten!

    Favorite thing: In Oosterbeek many things remember the Battle of Arnhem. First there is the hotel Hartenstein, where during the battle commander Urquhart kept his headquarters. The building was totally destroyed in the fierce battle and surrounded with graves. It got rebuild and across the street is the main monument raising up high in the sky. In the forest North-west of Oosterbeek one can find the "Common-wealth-warcemetery", where the brave soldiers that payed the highest price are (re)burried.

    Fondest memory: Proudly attending the Airborne-march every year (in 2003 for the 20st time!) every first Saturday in September
