17th Sept 1944

Posted as tomorrow morning is the 63rd Anniversary of Operation Market garden.

Poignant, as the Corps guidon now carries the battle honours of the Glider Pilot Regiment.

Fantastic to see the Guidon trooped yesterday and to see some of the GPR veterans on parade.

Salute to all who took part in the Operation, in particular to those who didn't come home.

Didn't know you were related in that way to a hero,mdn. Amazing what these guys did. With everlasting respect.
I'll second that, hats off to all who were involved... my Birthday yesterday also! 8O
