March 24 is a special day that few know. 69 years ago it was the date of the last and the greatest airborne operation of WWII code name "Varsity". There is a great article in Wikipedia (here) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Varsity).
Of course I have personal memories of that day; one is about being thankful that the Jeep I was sitting in had a steel floor. That was because it was in a glider and that floor was just plywood which offered little protection from the barrage of AA fire just below..
