    Thanks for sharing this news. Hopefully he will be identified and I am sure he will be buried with honour.
    Regards,

    Check out the toolbar top right, where it says 'TRANSLATE'. Works for me anyway.

    The Salvage and Identification Department of the Army (BIDKL) north of Bemmel has the remains of a British soldier from World War II salvaged. The field tomb was found in a pasture during the construction of a ditch. It is the second discovery of a British soldier in a short time.

    The British authorities have been informed about the discovery. In the laboratory of the BIDKL in Soesterberg is the identity of the soldier tried to figure out, so his relatives to make an end to years of uncertainty about his fate.


    Market Garden

    The BIDKL is provisionally that the soldier was killed in the aftermath of Operation Market Garden and served with the British 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division. In September and October 1944 yielded the ground forces around Bemmel heavy fighting with German units. This staged a counterattack on the Allied bridgehead north of Nijmegen.

    Another family have a answer now. Makes me happy- but kind of sad at the same time. Because It makes me think of all the missing soldiers, still in a unknown grave.

    Thanks for the link.
