The prints show the Bridge at Arnhem as taken by a Spitfire Reconnaissance sortie on the 6th September 1944 ( Sortie 106G 1676 ).
On the 17th September 1944 during Operation Market Garden, 600 men of the 2nd Parachute Battalion under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel John Frost launched an assault on this bridge which was to be subsequently known as the ' Bridge to Far '.
The Museum of Technology was invited to an Annual dinner at Combined Operations, Northwood where we displayed a selection of WW1 & WW2 equipment.
The Stereoscope and Ephemera were donated as a result.
