Piece of parachute from Market Garden


Recommended Posts

Because Market Garden was a day jump, their are actual photos of parachutes coming down to earth. My recollection is that most were camo, but you do see a few white canopies as well. Obviously, air crew chutes would have also been white as would the reserve chutes worn by the paratroopers. I have been told several times by vets that a lot of guys didn't even bother to wear a reserve chute because they were going to be jumping low enough that they wouldn't be able to deploy a reserve in the event of  main canopy failure.

 

Nice pieces.
