    Tpm Wallace,

    Your obviously a bit slow.So i will explain again for you to ignore. Horsapassenger is John Howes as he has said, Gliderrider is me Simon Haines as i have said.

    I thought we had dealt with the problem.
    I'm not into arnhem & airborne stuff so I don't read this thread that often.
    In case we haven't here's what I'll do.
    Anymore hassle & I'll delete the entire thread.

    A cleaner copy than mine :( but a useful addition to the Army equivalent ( Otway's Airborne Forces, lately reprinted by IWM.

    Thanks to VP for his permission to post this.

    I have a book coming out in early December. It is about my Grandfather, Johnny Wetherall and it follows his days in the Glider Pilot Regiment, his involvement in Market Garden and his time as a POW. As some of you know from previous posts, I originally wrote this for my family and not for publication, but thanks to the encouragement of some forum members and others, I have taken the plunge! There have been quite a few changes and updates since the last version but the overall story is the same.

    [SIZE=13.63636302948px]Updates will be posted to the facebook page for the book (feel free to like and share!) and to the forum. [/SIZE]

    Good for David Pasley to deliver a monument for his grandfather.
    But for the rest of the readers, can you disclose / hint more what sets this story apart from the countless other personal (arnhem para-) trooper published stories ?

    The small events themselves ? A more exciting writing style ? Different approach to understanding the problems without hindsighting ?
