Welcome Jon. You'll get the hang of navigating the site, don't worry. Hope to see some of those knives someday.

Hello Joop, welcome to the forum. The battle of Arnhem is interesting because of the alliied units fighting there. Visited Arnhem and Osterbeek several times years ago, but couldn`t visit the current museum there with the new exhibition. Think you will find answers for your questions in this site.
