In ‘Remembering Arnhem’ we have recorded the memoirs and personal accounts of a few selected combatants, men that took part. They tell their own personal stories and recollect their own individua experiences. The men we have chosen for this account were all recorded in their twilight years; and for many this film is probably their last public account of their experiences and memories of the ill-fated battle..’Their Last Post’.
