Arnhem Big Game Friday afternoon set up.Updated

Post by Don McHugh » Tue May 01, 2018 8:29 pm

Not a great journey up to Yorkshire,three accidents on the various motorways and rain all the way meant a 6 hour trip.

I arrived at the village hall with most of the tables set up, so it didn't take long to ad my bridges and canals and do the Driel table.

Image

The Yeghel Bridge in place on the Northern end of the 101st table.

Image

The bridge proved to be an important crossing.

Image

The Son Bridge in place.

Image

View of the 101st table looking north, Eindhoven is the large built up area in the fore ground.

Image

The Grave bridge on the 82nd table.

Image

The main prize the bridge at Arnhem.

Image

You can tell the Driel table as it has my darker cloth on it.

Image

This is my best attempt at an all table shot.

Everything was ready for the action to begin.

Before we left the hall we did the American para drops to save time on Saturday morning.

Image

The 101st landing zone to the west of the highway between Veghel and Son.

Image

The 82nd to the west of Nijmegen near Groesbeek

Superb tables! Looking forward to the AAR.... thmbs2)
Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.

Fantastic. How I wish that I could attempt something similar. Looking forward to the AAR.
