Highlights of the trip to Arnhem included a visit to the Old Church at Oosterbeek where we were met by Henk Duinhoven who told us some stories of Arnhem and the History of the Church and surrounding area.


Frans Ammerlaan was a fabulous tour guide with energy and enthusiasm as he told us the history of the area on the coach and at key locations along our route.


We visited the Cemetery at Oosterbeek and attended the main service of Memorial. We also attended the Air Dispatch Service and some if us waited for the mist to lift for the main Parcahute drop at Ginkel Heath including our own Tom Blakey who jumped from a Dakota.


We look forward to many trips like this in the future and thank Tony Ellis for organising the event.
