The Minute Diary, 10th November 2010-1st Mercian Regiment …

Returning troops from Afghanistan march through Congleton.Just a short snippet of film from the afternoon, it must have taken about 3 minutes for them all to march by with their band.

This end of town was quiet but the town centre was packed with crowds who had come to see them, there was a medal giving ceremony, but I never even got close to the town hall it was so packed!

70th Anniversary commemorations of Operation Market Garden …

The Chairman of the Arnhem Veterans Club (1944), Colonel John Waddy OBE , and the Colonel Commandant of the Parachute Regiment, Lieutenant General Jacko Page CB OBE who represents the present day Airborne Forces invite all those who served in the British 1st Airborne Division during OPERATION MARKET GARDEN to attend the events to mark the 70 th anniversary . All are welcome. The aim of the events marking the 70 th Anniversary is to ensure that a grateful nation s thanks are passed to those who took part in this action.

It is important that the focus should be on the surviving veterans, as they commemorate their fallen comrades whose sacrifice helped to bring about the liberation of The Netherlands and shorten the war in Europe. As this year s commemoration will be well attended, the organiser s of various events wish to provide reserved areas for veterans at major events to provide some level of comfort and security. These arrangements will include veteran marquees at Ginkel Heath and at OosterbeekCemetery to provide refreshments, seats and shelter.

In order to facilitate this, if you are intending to travel to Arnhem this year it would be very helpful if you would let the AVC and RHQ PARA know by registering your intention to travel with us. Those veterans planning to attend this year s commemoration are asked to register their names with RHQ PARA by completing this proforma 1 . The proforma asks you to provide your Name, Rank Number and Unit with 1st Airborne Division, including those who served with the Air Landing Brigade and all Divisional attached troops, and also to provide your AVC membership number if applicable.

This is the same form which is used when applying for the travel subsidy, but if applying for the subsidy it should be accompanied by your travel documentation. The Commemoration takes place over the weekend 19 21 Sep 2014 with the following events located in the Arnhem, Renkum, Oosterbeek and Overbertuwe area. The official programme is yet to be finalised, but is likely to proceed along the traditional lines as below: 19 Sep 14 Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Bridge followed by the veterans silent March Past and a concert given by the people of Arnhem at the John Frost Bridge.

20 Sep 2014 Parachuting and Memorial Service at Ginkel Heath in the morning and a Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Polish Memorial at Driel during the afternoon.

21 Sep 2014 Memorial Service at Oosterbeek in the morning followed by a Concert at The Needle Oosterbeek in the afternoon and finally the Air Dispatch Memorial Service.

Many will have travel and accommodation reservations already in place, however if not Tours International 2 who still have some vacancies can be can be contacted at [email protected] 3 or by phone at 01892 515825.

As a reminder, the following financial assistance is available to veterans wishing to attend this commemoration: a.

To get this subsidy please complete this form 4 and forward a copy of your travel documentation as directed on the proforma b.

Money is additionally available through Heroes Return , a lottery funded charity which supports veterans returning to commemorative events.

You will need to apply separately for the grant as directed at www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/prog_heroes_return 6 .

5 The focus of the commemorations is on the fallen and the surviving veterans so please register your intention to travel to Arnhem as soon as possible so that RHQ can provide as much support as possible to make this occasion a success.
