Lol,
Lee wat zijn Britse paragliders :D ?

Bedoel je de Gliderborne soldaten of de Glider Pilots?

Rob,
was your friend one of the Polish Paratroops that crossed the Rijn and were then directed to positions in the British perimeter?
Im asking this due to the picture you posted, as it is not Driel i think he was one of the 250 that made the crossing!
Good to have a friend like him m8 :wink: respect to him and his commrades!

Hi All !
Matter is enigmatic.
1. Caption reads as follows: "presently the Strijland Hotel"
2. In this building left side ist illegible (unreadable) inscription: VILLA HELVETIA - probably. Picture is weak quality.
3. In book "Poles Apart" this photo - caption reads as follows: Stationsweg after the battle. On the right is the Kremer home. On the left is Stationsweg no. 6, Lieutenent Bereda - Fialkowski's command post in Oosterbeek.
4. The Kremer house = Stationsweg no 8 ???
5. I seek the exact (precise) map - the best scan of good quality. Military map and different of this period.
I look of airphoto this region the crossroads.
6. Since when moment ends Stationsweg and begins Drijenscheweg ?
Also Polish soldiers fighting in these buildings on Stationsweg.
7. I do not know or my drawing is exact. To agree quantity of houses ?
I ask about every information, map, pictures or different materials.

Please, in english. :wink:

Robert

Hi !!!
Yes. My friend landed in Driel. He take in second part polish crossing by Ren to Oosterbeek. First positions occupy in the neighbourhood two lake (ponds). Then next, he occupy the houses on Stationsweg no 2 and constantly no 4.
He is sniper, but fight off German attacks as Brengunner. 25.09.44 he shield British soldiers' retreat (such order), but be not on time on crossing and be take prisoner. I'm visit him just this morning.
I and my friend - we want to establish (cleared) the exactly fight in Stationsweg and Utrechtseweg cross-road.

At present photo:
Is this Kremer home = Stationsweg no 8 ???
