Liberation Day is celebrated in the Netherlands on May 5 every year , to mark the end of the German occupation during the Second World War. Canadian, British, Polish and American Servicemen played a part in liberating the Netherlands. Liberation day is a national holiday - a time for celebration and festivals are held in many cities and towns.
The people of the Kingdom of the Netherlands offer a Medal of Remembrance as a token of gratitude for contributing to the liberation of the Netherland during WWII. Wally Hibbard (of the Lincoln Branch of the Royal Lincolnshire Regimental Association) has requested that we publish details of how to apply for this award - so that anyone else who was involved in Operation Market Garden or any other part of the action to liberate the Netherlands, can apply and receive their Commemorative Medal.
