Felling Male Voice Choir took the opportunity during their tour of Holland in 1978 to visit the Airborne Cemetery at Oosterbeck.
In a moving ceremony, the choir paid their tribute to the gallant young men who had made the ultimate sacrifice for their Country. One of the choir’s members, Bill Ridley, who was an Arnhem paratrooper, laid a wreath at the memorial. The choir sang a group of appropriate numbers.
Afterwards, the choir were given a tour of the Hartenstein Hotel, which was General Urquhart’s headquarters, and now a battle museum.
