Bulletholes in Bench Oranje-Parc Dordrecht

After days of fierce fighting, the Dutch troops of the Light Division had to withdraw. The route went to Papendrecht and came along the Oranje-parc and the Merwestein-parc.

This bench with the clock was used for covering while they were firing at the German troops. On the backside of the bench are serveral bulletholes of German fire.
