"Airborne Forces: The Courageous Heroes of the Skies" In the annals of military history, few units have captured the imagination quite like airborne forces. With their daring tactics and unwavering determination, these brave soldiers took to the skies in iconic aircraft such as the Westland Belvedere and Hamilcar Gliders, ready to drop into enemy territory. Their missions were not for the faint-hearted. Equipped with formidable weapons like the M22 Locust tank and Vickers Light Tank Mk. VII Tetrarch, they brought heavy firepower wherever they landed. Even ammunition and supplies were dropped from above to support them during critical moments like at Arnhem on September 18th, 1944. The black-and-white photographs tell a story of resilience amidst chaos. A paratrooper armed with a PIAT stands guard over a road while troops move forward into Arnhem on September 19th, 1944.
