During the fighting at Arnhem Robert Peatling of 2 Para became cut off from his Battalion,
he had escorted a group of German prisoners to the Police Station. On the 19th September 1944
he was ordered by the Military Police Sergeant to surrender, instead he took advantage of
the general confusion to slip away to the attic, remaining hidden alone. Despite the lack
of food and companionship he never wavered in his decision not to surrender. On the
31st October he was discovered by a Dutch Policeman who suggested he change into civilian
clothes and leave with a Dutch Resistance man. He lived in Arnhem with the Resistance group
until 31st December when it became very dangerous. On the 17th April he met the Canadian Army
and was flown home having survived seven months behind enemy lines. An exciting story well told.
