Arnhem Commemoration Window

This Commemoration Window is in St Peter's Church in Woodhall Spa. The window has been commisioned by the joint battalions of the 1st Air Landing Brigade;
it includes and commemorates the:
- 1st Battalion The Border Regiment
- 2nd Battalion The South Staffordshire Regiment
- 7th Battalion The Kings Own Scottish Border Regiment

These three battalions were based in Woodhall Spa during 1944 and left there to participate in the Arnhem landing in September of that year.

This window commemorates the 75th anniversary of a deeply significant engagement in British military history. Allied forces, the regiments already mentioned and men of the Polish and British Regiments showed significant courage in battle with the loss of many fallen comrades in September 1944.
