Christmas 2018: Candles at Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery

We are very grateful to Mr Herbert Möller for some beautiful photographs taken at the candlelit Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery on Christmas Eve, 2018. This is one of his photos:

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission indicates that the Cemetery contains the graves of most of those killed during the September 1944 "Market Garden" landings, and many of those killed in later fighting in the area. There are now 1,691 Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War buried or commemorated in the cemetery. There are also 79 Polish and three Dutch war graves.
