Een leiflijke fiets! - Reminds me of a brilliant trip to Arnhem for the 50th back in 94, I'm an ex-Para, but not Arnhem vintage! Saw huge groups of young lads dressed in Dennison smocks and looking incredibly authentic; I thought they must be 2 or 3 Para lads dressed by and equipped by the AB Forces Museum, but on chatting to them they all turned out to be local Netherlands boys, made me feel quite honoured! Later had a ride oner the Rijn in an old amphi craft ownwd by another local chap. All in all a very moving and fun visit.

If I liked our Netherlands cousins before, then I love them now, even though they always ask me if I'm a German when I try and speak a bit of Anglo-Fries-Diets! - before they laugh!
