Join us on Saturday 23rd September 2023 in remembering “Operation Market Garden“, 17th – 27th September 1944.
From 14:30 the Perdido Players Swing Band will be entertaining us with sounds from the 1940s.
A collection will be made in aid of St Peter and St James Hospice .
We also hope to have a selection of military vehicles, and some US Paratrooper re-enactors to bring the day to life.
All of this alongside the usual exhibition including our Dakota fuselage. 1438 C-47/Dakota planes were used in ‘Market Garden’, serving as paratrooper transport and glider tugs.
