In September 1944 the allies tried to push across the Rhine river to end the war quickly. The ill fated operation Market Garden ended with the Battle of Arnhem, just one bridge to far. This year there were several remembrance events as it is 75 years ago. One of these remembrance events was near Driel, a small village close to Arnhem. On 21 September 1944, Driel was the drop zone of the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade which participated in Operation Market Garden.

I used the LA-EA1 with the 100-300 APO(D) - all these are strictly manual focus.
I am a bit baffled at some of the EXIF, maybe something wrong there? Don't know, the pictures are fine and that is important.

Thank you for looking.

Nice reportage Addy! #4 with that light in the parachutes and #6 are my favourites.

Indeed a good reportage Addy, 2 and 3 are nice ones with the old dakota and "catching" the parachute jumper is certainly an added bonus. ^, 7 and 9 give a good view of all that could be seen at the day.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Great set of images and a fascinating documentation as well!

My personal favorites are #4 and #7. It's pretty challenging to use those old parachutes (almost no maneuverability).

TFS!

Yes, these days we have these matres parachutes that are very much controllable, but these old ones are much more tricky!

Everybody thanks for their remarks, very much appreciated!
