Another Gldier Rider and dear friend has soared away...........


Recommended Posts

Was informed yesterday that my good friend Bob Bridge had passed away due to complications from Covid.  Bob was a veteran of B Company - 325th GIR - 82nd AB who fought with the unit from Market Garden through the end of the war.  He told me many interesting stories and gave great insight into what some situations were like for them during the war.  From the fog lifting on them when they were advancing across the Mook Plains leaving them exposed to intense German artillery and machine gun fire to how cold and miserable it was in the Ardennes stopping the German advance using little more than the weapons they were able to carry.

 

RIP Bob.  95 years was a good life, may your last landing be a soft and safe one!  You will be missed.

I still can't believe that what German 88's and machine guns couldn't kill was felled by something we cannot even see!  I will miss you so much Bob.  RIP brave soldier and a GREAT man!
