World War II soldier from Liskeard reburied in Arnhem

"The Netherlands Army Recovery and Identification Unit identified his remains and preserved them for re-interment."

I saw a programme on the military channel the other day about these guys. It's amazing how many remains thay still find after all these years. The programe I saw concentrated on a dutch national who was found to have been executed. Turns out he was a Nazi collaborator and was killed by the Dutch at the end of the war!
I saw this on the local news last night, and found the whole story very moving. Would to thank the Dutch government, and in particular the military unit who identify remains, for their continued work in laying to rest those who fell in Holland and are unknown when found.
