Many of the pilots in the "Glider Pilot Regiment" were former soldiers... Once their glider had landed and disgorged the troops the pilot and co pilot were expected to fight alongside their “human cargo”... This sergeant pilot is no exception... Note his pilot’s wings above the left pocket on his “Denison” smock.

Lieut. Denis Boiteux-Buchanan M.C.
Known to his brother officers as “Bucky” this officer had seen a fair bit of action before Arnhem including being captured and successfully escaping from both the Germans and the Italians! He jumped into Arnhem with the rest of 2 Para on 17 September, 1944 as Battalion Intelligence Officer. He was often in the thick of the fighting with Lieut.Col.Frost and sadly was killed in the final hours of the battle at the bridge on 20 September. He is buried at Oosterbeek War Cemetery in Arnhem. Here we show him kneeling studying the deteriorating situation.

Maj. Robert Cain V.C.

Maj. Robert Cain V.C.
Robert Cain was a company commander with the 2nd. Battalion, South Staffordshire Regiment, part of 1st. Airborne’s Air Landing Brigade (they came by glider not parachutes). During Arnhem his exemplary courage, leadership and skill with the PIAT anti tank rocket launcher (knocking out several German tanks) led to him being awarded Britain's highest military honour. He was also wounded three times during the battle but continued to fight and lead his men with great gallantry and endurance throughout. Our figure shows him pistol drawn moving to a new position with the PIAT on his shoulder.

"Walkie-Talkie"

"Walkie-Talkie"
At Arnhem, because of its unique location, there was a serious problem with the British radio communications. Fortunately the American made hand-held “walkie-talkies”, although limited in range, were also available. This Lee-Enfield armed Para tries to get his message across.
