Next to ’s Heerenberg commemorations were held at Doetinchem at the Sherman tank and the Canada Park as well as near the monument at the Town Hall.
Coffee and tea in the tent at the Canada Park was accepted gratefully. This was a moment to dry up a bit. The Colour Party of RCL005 and the Apeldoorn Pipes and Drums led by Piet Polderdijk accompanied us from the commemoration in the Canada Park to the centre of Doetinchem. The Mayor of Doetinchem gave speeches at the the Canada Park and the monument in the city centre. The whole group crossed the “oude IJssel” using a pontoon bridge. There were heavy winds causing the bearers to use two hands to hold the Colours.
