These are photos of the Market Garden trip I made with my son in August. I didn’t get around to posting them yet, but here they are, all 219 of them!
First you see photos from the Overloon war museum, which has a huge collection of vehicles! It is nothing like how I remember the museum from when I was little. I really recommend it.
Then you see photos from airborne related landmarks in the area where the 101st Airborne landed in Operation Market Garden:
- Veghel: the Klondike villa 101st Airborne that was the 501 PIR headquarters and the Kangaroo monument that’s just around the corner of it.
- St Oedenrode: Henkenshage castle, which was the headquarters of the 101st Airborne Division and the Monument to the Dutch, a gift to the people of Brabant from veterans of the 101st
- Son: monument marking the temporary US cemetery and the (new) bridge at Son
- Best: The Robert Cole Monument and the Joe Mann Monument, and finally the Wings of Liberation museum in Best.
The museum in Best was alright, but looking back, I would rather have driven around the area a bit more to see more landmarks.
