The 4th Parachute Squadron, Royal Engineers was raised to support the 4th Parachute
Brigade and landed with them at Arnhem on 18th September 1944. Responsible for getting
the brigade's heavy transport and guns across the railway embankment during their
hasty retreat into the Oosterbeek Perimeter, the squadron found itself split in
half and inserted into the line to fight as infantry. Each half stood their ground
after repeated attacks, taking numerous casualties in the process. This in not only
the story of how they held out, but how they managed to hit back at their attackers
before they were eventually evacuated
