Marking a special date

In September this year, it will be the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem.

On Tuesday, September 16, I will lead a coach party from the North of England to attend the special Arnhem ceremonies, including a parachute drop at Ginkel Heath.

We will also attend the ceremony at Oosterbeek Airborne Cemetery, have a full tour of the Arnhem battlefield area, follow the route of XXX Corps and visit the site of the Rhine Crossings, the Reichswald Forest and the home of the ex-Kaiser.

We have a few places left and I will be happy to supply full details to your readers if they contact me at 2 Eden Gate, Warcop, Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria, CA16 6PL, telephone 017683 41060 or email
