Please find attached our first newsletter this year. This is a one off posting unless you wish to be kept informed in future. Hard copies can be sent on request as well.

The reason for sending this to an Airborne audience is to spread the word that we do have an area set aside within the Allied Special Forces Grove which has been planted with Silver Birch, Wild Cherry Trees and some Red Oaks grown from acorns found in Oosterbeek Cemetery, Netherlands. All these trees were planted 6 years ago.

Should any Airborne Forces, colleagues, family and friends wish to commemorate those that have lost their lives or those that have served and survived, then we have the trees already planted and a Grove maintained by public donation and members of our association.

We understand that an Airborne/Para memorial is being consider for the National Memorial Arboretum and we in no way wish to detract from that.

What we have is a 3 acre Grove set between two lakes and a river with a railway viaduct behind it. Our next newsletter will show this in more detail from an aerial view.

John Wetter from the Newport Para Reg association has already been instrumental in raising funds for the Grove and the development of the Airborne Forces area.

We would be glad to expand on this or meet up with you in the Grove to discuss any matter if required.

Thank you for your time.


Yours faithfully,

Mike Colton
Secretary
