“In 2014 it will be the 70th Anniversary of Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge from WWII.

During WWII, Wollaton Park was ‘home’ to part of the Airborne forces of the US Army, ie, those borne, or transported by air, who were stationed in Nottingham.

Permission has been sought and granted to include the online stories from the AMC museum in the USA that include references to Wollaton Park, or to the missions the Allied Forces bravely undertook during that time.

There is a small memorial with information just near the Courtyard in the park and there’s an American War Cemetary near Cambridge.”
