Dakotas and Horsas over Arnhem black and white version
Commissioned by the son of one of the crew of the aircraft in the foreground, KG514. This features events on 18 September 1944 when No 271 Squadron RAF Transport Command C-47 Dakotas towed Horsa gliders to LZ 'S' near Arnhem, carrying men of the British 1st Airborne Division. That was Day Two of Operation Market - the airborne component of the overall Operation Market Garden.
