Translation Text from Dutch article:


Oosterbeek - A number of British veterans, including two Arnhem veterans, finally came to see the renovation of the Airborne museum Hartenstein on Saturday 28 February. When they were in the Netherlands a day before the official reopening, in March 2020, to be the first to view the renovated museum, our country went into lockdown and they had to return to England.


They hadn't been to the Netherlands since then, but thanks to the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans from London who organized this trip for them, they could finally, after two years, see the renovation and all the changes for themselves. A visit to the Airborne cemetery was certainly not forgotten. They just had their own ceremony because that was too long ago.


De Veluwezoom In Beeld was there and made the above report including interviews with veteran Geoff Roberts, who was part of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers in September 1944, and Ronnie Weijers, director of the Airborne Museum.
