Arnhem Commemorations 21 september 2012

    Today we took Harry Dicken and his grandson James on a tour along the places that had been during the Battle of Arnhem. We started and ended at Ginkel Heath.


    In the background the south-easterly part of Ginkel Heath, where Harry landed on 18 September 1944.


    Follow the track on LZ-L on the map.

    Back on the Ginkel. Harry and other veterans of 4 para were invited by the autor who will publish a book about the 10th battalion next year. After this, there was a Battlefield tour.




    Harry got the chance to tell his own stories.
