Airborne Battle Wheels Oosterbeek was founded in 1996 to keep the vehicles that were used in the Battle of Arnhem “rolling”.
We do this to keep the memory of those who fought and died for our freedom alive. For veterans, their families and certainly the future (younger) generations.
The ABWO foundation enables an annual weekend in September, the “Airborne Battle Wheels Weekend”.
During that weekend we commemorate the Battle of Arnhem with historically correct tours and displays of men, equipment and a variety of vehicles.
Our weekend is an opportunity to show respect to the veterans and stay in mutual contact. At the same time this is a social event for people with a passion for vehicles of World War 2. To share knowledge and pass information in an informal surrounding.
Do you own a historically correct British vehicle of any kind from World War 2 ? Do you know what we mean by “respecting those who fought and died for our freedom” ?
If so: visit our camp site and participate in the events we organize during our annual meeting.
