Lance Sergeant Bill Fulton

Lance Sergeant Bill Fulton
Bill was the first British Soldier to actually step foot on the Arnhem Bridge on the evening of 17 September 1944. Advancing forward with a small section he captured several Germans before being wounded himself by return fire. After being evacuated to Brigade HQ he was finally captured several days later and spent the remainder of the war in Stalag XI B in Germany. The “Pathfinder” BillFulton peers cautiously round a corner armed with his MK.V Sten Gun with bayonet attached. - See more at: http://www.kingandcountry.com/lance-sergeant-bill-fulton-p-8087.html#sthash.MUGCjroY.dpuf

Lieut. Denis Boiteux-Buchanan M.C.

Lieut. Denis Boiteux-Buchanan M.C.
Known to his brother officers as “Bucky” this officer had seen a fair bit of action before Arnhem including being captured and successfully escaping from both the Germans and the Italians! He jumped into Arnhem with the rest of 2 Para on 17 September, 1944 as Battalion Intelligence Officer. He was often in the thick of the fighting with Lieut.Col.Frost and sadly was killed in the final hours of the battle at the bridge on 20 September. He is buried at Oosterbeek War Cemetery in Arnhem. Here we show him kneeling studying the deteriorating situation.
