    Red lead I would guess (don't lick the brush!)

    Good luck with your mammoth labour, it's progressing well.

    Kind regards, always,

    Jim.

    Ooooh Stolpi, those folks have used a still from the movie "A Bridge Too Far" (at Deventer) in that piece.

    Interesting web site though.

    Kind regards, always,

    Jim.

    Allen - Some aerials taken from Van Buggenum, "B Company arrived". Alas found no pre-war pictures of the buildings you're interested in. Buggenum calls the central building (F) next to the bridge 'The Smithy'. (see the attached map).

    hmmm keep getting different names for the buildings one is the school next to the joiners yard on the kadestraat so i assume the smaller building is some sort of joiners work shop. i have an idea what the bigger building looks like from the view in the photo so i suppose i could work off that 63102384-arnhem-construction copy.jpg

    Hi Allan,

    Great work so far. Perhaps you could do with some Airborne Jeeps to go with it.
