Sombre, Respectful

Lovely & respectful for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for their mates. Sadly noticed a number graves stones only showing "A Soldier of the 1939-1945 War". Lest We Forget.

We normally travel to Oosterbeek for the main Market Garden commemorations in September but as my WW2 veteran father-in-law is almost 90 the packed programme over that weekend is getting too much for him. We decided to visit in July to give us more time to explore the area and it was a great move. Although VERY hot (35c +),... More

This cemetery is a mix of all the non-American forces who participated in Market Garden. It is in a nice quiet residential neighborhood and peaceful. The graces are laid out in a common pattern as seen in the Commonwealth cemeteries. This was one of my favorites from this visit and is well worth the trip.

Go to the Airborne Museum first, watch the museum intro video, only 8 minutes. Explains how important this cemetery is to so many people. The inscriptions from friends and family on the graves thanking the chaps for their effort / sacrifice / being themselves is something else. Read them and weep, to coin a phrase.

This is a solemn and moving place to visit. Walking between the rows of beautifully kept graves is a journey through the Arnhem Campaign of World War 2. The whole experience is thought provoking.

Moving, special place. Rows of identical tombstones with name, rank, unit, and date of death - plus moving words from their families. Notable - the British twins laid to rest side to side who died on day one of the invasion. Beautifully maintained by Belgian schoolchildren. A few American and Canadian graves. Polish troops were buried apart from the rest... More
