STUNNING NEW PRINT RELEASE COMMEMORATING OPERATION MARKET GARDEN

The Race to the Bridge by Nicolas Trudgian

THE RACE TO THE BRIDGE
by
Nicolas Trudgian

On the 17th September 1944, Private Steve Morgan of the 2nd Parachute Battalion,  Medium Machine Gun Platoon, made his first combat jump at the age of nineteen in the heroic battle for the bridge at Arnhem.  His platoon landed at Renkum on the outskirts of Oosterbeek with orders to take the ‘Lion’ route, the direct approach to the bridge, seven miles away. En route they encountered a warm reception from the Dutch people but were soon engaged by German forces whose resistance grew with every yard closer to the bridge, it was not until the evening that Steve Morgan and his colleagues reached their objective then for three days and four nights they fought valiantly suffering terrible losses until the remaining soldiers ran out of ammunition and supplies.

The print has been personally signed by Private Steve Morgan of the 2nd parachute Battalion medium machine gun platoon

Friends with the Few

Friends with the ‘FEW’

Since I started collecting autographs nearly 45 years ago, I became personal friends with many of the ‘FEW’ 
I would visit many of them at their homes but so many would come to the air shows in their latter years signing for the public and raising tens of thousands of pounds for their charities.

There were a number of nights when we would accommodate them at a Hotel, that inevitably ended in long sessions at the bar and by the end of the evening having a hefty bar bill!  I’m sure they enjoyed sitting around reminiscing as I did listening.

Friends with the Few

 

I have so many stories, but two of my favourites were when Wing Commander Terry Kane would come to the signing events and once we had all sat down ready for signing, Terry would say to me “Is it 10 O’clock yet Colin?” and I would reply “Yes"
“that means the bar is open” he would say, and would send me off to pour a very large glass of Gin and Tonic.

On several official functions I would make sure the veterans were okay for drink and  another nice story is that I just leant over to make sure Geoffrey Wellum was okay and he said to me “I’m getting a bit bored now” I then suggested we discretely disappear for half an hour to the bar next door, this is one of my favourite photos with a great man.

This print was signed many years ago and we paid the pilots personally a signing fee to help them or the charity of their choice.
I just wanted to put this personal note as a thank you to them for always supporting me in my adventures in the aviation art business.

I hope you feel as we do that this is a true tribute to the valiant ‘FEW’ who protected our shores in the desperate months of 1940.
