Rededication Service six Graves The Border Regiment

There are a couple of hundred graves for unknown soldiers at the Airborne Cemetery in Oosterbeek. These soldiers could not be identified when they were buried shortly after the war. Recently and with the help of modern DNA technology six soldiers of the Border Regiment could be identified, 72 years after they had passed away.

On 14 September 2016 a Rededication Service was held for these men:
Corporal Jack Carr
Corporal Thoms Edgar
Lance Corporal Raymond Halliday
Private Thomas Edward Stanley
Private Harry Vasey
Private George Wilson

After the central part of the service, wreaths were laid at the six graves.
