As others have written it’s sad to hear of the passing of John Waddy at the weekend. In Sept 1944, John Waddy was OC B Coy 156 Parachute Battalion. Here is talking about his experiences in 1944. (Intro is in Dutch).

Sad to hear about the death of John Waddy, one of the most active Arnhem veterans. He was so helpful when GPs at Arnhem was being written. Happy to correspond and advise on even the smallest detail. I always recommend his guidebook to aspiring Guides. He will genuinely be missed.

I’m seeing a few reports on facebook groups that Arnhem veteran Colonel John Waddy, who celebrated his 100th birthday in June, has passed away. Waddy’s book was the first I read about Arnhem and it’s still the best in my opinion. An incredible man.

Rest in peace.
