Friends of the Tenth


In September 2019, the Friends of the Tenth will unveil the 10th Battalion’s commemorative sculpture close to their wartime base in Somerby, Leicestershire. If you are an Arnhem veteran, they would be delighted if you would honour them with your presence (if you know of a veteran, will you kindly pass on this information?)

They would especially love to hear from anyone who is or who knows a veteran of the 10th Battalion The Parachute Regiment (1942-1944, WW2).

Finally, if you are a next of kin to a member of the 10th Battalion (1942-1944) they wiould be delighted if you can attend the ceremony. Please contact Alec Wilson at or write to the address below.
