Maasbracht Holland Parade
On Monday 23rd January 2017, in Maasbracht Holland, our Branch President Col. (Ret'd) Steve Owen OBE, and our Treasurer Chris Farrell attended the Remembrance Service for Lcpl Eric Harden VC who died while saving the lives of wounded soldiers who were ambushed by German machine gunners.
The children of a local school in Maasbracht also remembered the Liberation of Holland and expressed thankfulness for their Freedom.
After a short service the children laid flowers, and a wreath was laid by the Rheindahlen Branch Of The Royal British Legion.
The Rememberance Service was organized by Mr. Peter Roufs, a teacher at the local school.
We hope to participate on this service on an annual basis.
