    Hi Guys,

    I am hoping the 1st Airborne & Arnhem experts might be able to help me out here.

    I am looking for some information on Capt. A.D. Llewellyn-Jones who was with 1st Airlanding Anti-Tank Battery R.A. he was at Arnhem Bridge and was harboured by a Dutch family but was captured two weeks later.

    Any information about which flight he was in would be great.

    Thanks guys

    If it narrows it down any he came in one of the Battery HQ gliders. His glider landed at 1332 on LZ 'S'. Hope this helps.

    Can't find where I found that he was harboured by a Dutch family I know it was in a book somewhere but I can't find it at the moment. I did come across on the Royal Artillery Units Netherlands website Llewellyn-Jones's 1984 personal account of his time at Arnhem.

    RETURN TO ARNHEM 40 YEARS ON - SEPTEMBER 1984 by A.D. Llewellyn-Jones, Capt. 1st Airlanding Anti-Tank Battery R.A.

    Came across your post by accident. When I was four, Arvian was my dads boss on Bangladesh. We stayed with him for a couple of weeks when we first arrived. I have fond memories of him and I know he told my dad that he had escaped from the Germans and on recapture had a tendon cut to prevent re-escape. Not sure about a Ditch family, but can ask.
    He once sent me a litre of ice cream because I had said (as a 4 year old) that I could have eaten the whole block (it was dessert at a dinner party at his house). Unfortunately my mum confiscated the block halfway through my experiment and wouldn’t believe my story.
