Fighting Glider Pilot

Fighting Glider Pilot
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.

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.

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).

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"
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.
