Complete PPN-1A beacon

Here are some photos I made of my visit to the Airborne Museum in Oosterbeek (Arnhem).

Overall, I liked the museum, although its focus is purely on the British parachute and glider operations in the area, so don’t expect to see any American uniforms and equipment. At the beginning of the exhibit, the larger picture of the Market Garden campaign is very well explained in a video. I liked that.

Among the special items I would like to point out the PPN-1A pathfinder beacon. See photos.

The exhibit in the basement was a bit disappointing to me. A lot of space with comparatively few items and a lot of audio info and text to read. I found it a bit tiresome. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood for a lot of reading anymore after visiting the rest of the museum.
