Arnhem Commemoration 2016

Once again a large number of Fellowship members, Arnhem veterans and their families and friends met up in Holland to commemorate the Battle of Arnhem. This year was the 72nd commemoration and whilst the number of veterans who were able to attend was 25, it was still a good number and long may it continue.

The usual Fellowship activities took place with the AGM and walk on Friday, the Fellowship area at Ginkel Heath on Saturday and participation in the service at the cemetery on Sunday coupled with a service of remembrance at the Dreyeroord Hotel on the Sunday.

A report on these will appear in the October newsletter but a number of photographs from the weekend follow. If anyone has any comments about the weekend can they please email info@arnhem1944
