Within the UK, the air drops on Arnhem, and the attempts to take the bridges by the Allies, in September 1944 are well known. However, there was considerable fighting following that ... in a sense, to widen the liberated zone to the West and East of Hell’s Highway.
Our speaker is Dirk Paagman, who will connect with us from his home in the Netherlands. Dirk’s home town is Schijndel, and he has a major research project regarding the fighting in October 1944 to liberate the area. Dirk pays particular honour to the Highlanders who died in this fighting, and are buried in the local cemetery.
All are welcome and a lively evening is guaranteed! Zoom details will be sent on the day. Thanks.
