    Just a reminder to all those wishing to attend, the commemorative service for the 77th anniversary of Operation Varsity takes place this Thursday. Hopefully it will be well attended after a three year break. The weather forecast is excellent, much like that morning in 1945.

    Well done Jenny!

    Just in time for March 24th I recently completed two more short Operation Varsity related studies. The first titled "DZ 'A' Clips & Photos - Operation Varsity" is based on findings from a forum thread. The second follows two AFPU cameramen, "The Arrival of Sgts Christie & Oakes on LZ 'R' - Operation Varsity". Both are photo intensive and can be downloaded separately in PDF form from here:
