Our veterans' trip to Arnhem might not have featured in the British press (aside from a piece in the Evening Standard), but it certainly didn't get ignored by the Dutch press. Here are some press clippings from the Arnhem edition of de Gelderlander newspaper and website.

And our guys made it into the print edition on 4 May 2015, including a fantastic photo of one of our veterans saluting through the taxi window, as the convoy of taxis arrive at the Bronbeek Military Home in Arnhem.
