Hello there, Roodymiller recommended this forum. I'm quite new here.. So, don't know what to expect. Anyway, I've always been interested in the history of the 6th Airborne Division and therefore also trying to know more about this division. Recently, I've decided to focuss on the 8th Parachute Battalion. Although this unit was dropped further forward than any other unit within the division and then also was in the Bois de Bavent fighting a battle away from the other units, it seems the military historians have overlooked it a bit. I was wondering if amongst the members of this forum might be any one with ties to this unit. Family? Friends? If so, I would like to get in touch with them. We might be able to help each other. Looking forward to hear from you, Yours C.
