Battle of Arnhem – 77th Anniversary Memorial Service

Saturday the 11th September saw a memorial service take place at 11:00 in the grounds of the Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum by the Arnhem Memorial. The service was officiated by Mrs Sheila Mullenger, who is a Diocesan Reader.  Steve Hall, Branch Chairman, laid the wreath and David Mullenger, Branch President, recited the words from the poem “For the Fallen” by Lawrence Binyon.
This marks 77 years since the battle took place in September 1944 when servicemen departed from Woodhall Spa to undertake this courageous operation.
A small group also attended the service to honour those that failed to return and all others that have since passed away.
Photographs were taken by our volunteer cameraman and museum director, Phil Groves.
