Oosterbeek / Arnhem 2013

At last one is home. It has been lovely days in Oosterbeek / Arnhem Holland. Not as it is at 
home as I am writing this, RAINING. It was nice to meet all old friends one have come in 
touch in Holland and some new from Czech Republic and some new two.

This year we went whit our father and a new member of our group to visit the different 
location in and outside the perimeter of the Oosterbeek pocket. We started in the 
Oosterbeek pocket and drove first to Heelsum to look at the Memorial that is erected 
of resupply containers. We drove to the Wolfheze Drop / landing zones as we visited the 
sites we had a battlefield tour book to our help that was wery good whit some nice 
storys about the different locations that we visited further on our tour.

The 21st Independent Parachute Company was mentiened a couple of times in the book. 
We were at the John Frost bridge memorial service and the Polish at Driel it was very 
moving. It has been very educational trip to see all the hot spots and there are more 
to see as we did not se all.

These pictures that you see here are right before the opening of the event. The event 
was nice as the previous years and as usual came across old friends from previous 
years and some Dutch tourist that know about the Airborne Battle Wheels event in

It was very pleasent that our display got many visitors and that they where curious 
about the things we displayed. We will post more pictures of the whole event as I did 
not had time to take more pictures and we hade a friend who was there and took 
pictures of the whole event, so we need to borrow his memory card for more pictures.

Liberation Festival Plzen

Now I sit here in front of the computer and try to sum up our little expedition to Plzen. 
there were different camps in plzen, American, British, German and contemporary American. 
Plzen was liberated by the Americans beginning of May, because of this they keep this
 festival every year. Every year there are coming American veterans to join the celebration
 and every year, there are some that fall off. It is a very good and serious re-enactment event. 
There are several monuments for the American units that participated in the liberation of Plzen and museums. 
Me and my brother were participants as Czech soldiers in the British army. A few days after the
 Americans liberated Plzen there came a small Czech unit. The Czech unit would be symbolic in that it
 would be in the liberation of the czech republic but essentially Prague. There were several activities 
related to the festivities, fashion show 40s, boxing match and much other tings. The festival 
was well planned. We must say that we were well received as one of the Czech re-eenactors 
told us that he'd like to have seen more international clubs come. We would like to thank our hosts 
for letting us be with you, Many Thanks. We can warmly recommend to travel to Plzen.

Free Czech Forces

Want to show a nice Item. Does not have anything to do whit the 
British Airborne. It is a gift from Czech Officers to a Capt N.G Arnold from 
the Czechoslovak training department/depot. The inscription on the 
Cigar/cigarette case is To Capt N.G. Arnold From The Officers of the 
Czechoslovak TNG. DEP.-E. MEF. April 1943. If there is any out there that 
could help me with the abbreviation on the case, I would appreciat it very much.
