In World War II the Dutch city of Nijmegen was the scene of heavy fighting as part of Operation Market Garden as British forces rushed to prevent the Germans destroying two bridges across the Waal river. Many British soldiers died in fighting around the city and the locals were to remain ever grateful for the efforts to liberate their city. It is unsurprising then that different regiments of the British Army have been invited to the city for parades over the years. Today we are looking at a group of photographs showing military policemen from the Royal Corps of Military Police parading in the city in the early post-war period. The identification of the location comes from a photographer’s stamp on the rear of one photograph so there is an element of guesswork on my part, but it seems a sensible conclusion. Amongst the snaps of the British contingent are a number of images of local Dutch soldiers dressed in a mix of US and British uniform and webbing and looking quite distinct from the British troops.
