Croydon’s twin town in Holland will be visited by British battlefield pilgrims.

Every September schoolchildren in Arnhem, Holland, lay flowers at the graves of men who died in the Second World War.

The town was home to Operation Market Garden in 1944, which is immortalised in the 70’s film A Bridge Too Far.

Dutch troops aimed to end the war by making a swift crossing across the river Rhine to capture Berlin.

Battlefield Memorial Tours, based in Birmingham in the West Midlands, are making an anniversary pilgrimage to the site exactly 70 years after the battle.

The coach party will also visit Dunkirk on their trip from September 19-23.
