    Only because this really should be auctioned right now (because of the historical date),
    we will make an exception and auction this picture before the RBL auctions start.


    Thanks to a very generous donor,
    we are delighted to auction this picture of the Bridge at Arnhem,
    signed by John Frost.

    It has very slight damage, as can be seen in the pictures,
    but the frame can be repaired or replaced.
    It is 65 years since the events at Arnhem,
    and we're very grateful that an arrser has the opportunity to buy this memento.



    Bidding for this marvellous item will end on

    Wednesday, 30th of September, 2200 hrs
    .


    (Just to make sure, this is GMT. :D )

    I'm sure you all know that there is always an urgent cause like this one.

    So, let's honour a historic moment and help the soldiers of today by doing so.
