Everybody is familiar with the history of Market Garden and what took place in September 1944. Today we want to remember these events and to relive it to some extend. More important is to commemorate what happened and all those who fought and died during operation Market Garden.
Each year PGH plans three commemoration jumps in the Market Garden commemoration weekend. For the 75th anniversary PGh has planned a whole week. Starting the week on Monday 16 September with the opening of our basecamp at Wolfheze until Sunday 22 September. On sunday we will end Market Garden 2019 with our closing ceremony by handing out certificates and commemoration patches in the afternoon at Wolfheze
