  • The best army in the world rip Bob Lee and airborne lads who gave all they had
  • This cemetery has approx 1745 allied soldiers, who gave their lives between September 1944 and April 1945, when the allies commenced operation Market Garden. The cemetery is beautifully maintained and a tribute to the men who died there. The commonwealth war graves commission should be commended for their fine work at this site. I must visit for anyone who is interested in WW2 history. It is a very moving and emotional experience to visit this site.
