Written by John Sliz, published by Travelogue 219.
The defense of the Arnhem bridge is one of history’s most epic battles and
the 1st Parachute Squadron, Royal Engineers played an important part in it.
Finding itself defending several buildings around the bridge, the engineers
were forced to put down their picks and shovels and pick up their rifles and
Bren guns to fight as infantry. Starting with the creation of the squadron to
the rebuilding after the battle, this is the story of how they held on even
as the buildings they occupied burned and crumbled around them.
