Information Panel Perimeter Route no. 5

The text on the panel is:
Perimeter Route
At several spots along this route are information panels that tell the story of the Battle of Arnhem during the Second World War.

The troops in Oosterbeek defended the perimeter north of the Rhine in the hope that they would be relieved by the army advancing from the south.
You can see the Rhine from this point. By 22 September 1944, XXX Corps troops from the south had reached the village of Driel on the opposite bank of the river. Here they made contact with the 950 Polish parachutists who had landed the previous day. Because of a lack of boats only 150 Poles were able to cross the Rhine to reinforce the British.
