HAMPSHIRE and Isle of Wight Army Cadet Force travelled to Holland to march in the memory of British and Polish servicemen killed trying to capture the Arnhem Bridge in September 1944.

The youngsters teamed up with members from Surrey Army Cadet Force in Oosterbeek to form a contingent of over 400 Army and Air Training Corp cadets in the 66th annual Airborne March.

The cadets learned about Operation Market Garden and visited the Hartenstein Museum and Military Cemetery in Oosterbeek where 1,700 British and Polish servicemen are buried.

There, the cadets took time to remember the men who lost their lives and laid wreaths and crosses in their memory.
