    Default Arnhem relic

    This came to me thru my extended family on my mothers side from England, on my dads side they were all German.

    My great uncle was a Glider pilot in Arnhem....

    He recieved this on the 40th Anniversary and mounted it himself! I really like the item, and the way he has displayed it along with his patch and badge!

    Im not going to change a thing on it, it was how he set it up! I like the way he initialed the change in date!

    Yes, it is. A private purchase example.

    Interestingly the 'jeep' design was reduced in width so as it would fit into a Horsa glider.Lovely collection
