Lieutenant Grayburn, Arnhem Bridge 1944

Special Order Item

This 8" scale cold cast bronze finished figure commemorates the heroic actions of Lt. John Grayburn at Arnhem in 1944 during WWII detailed below.

On the 17th of September John Grayburn parachuted into Holland with his battalion as part of 'Operation Market Garden'. His platoon's task was to seize and hold the bridge across the Rhine at Arnhem. By nightfall the north end of bridge was secure, but the south side was in German hands. Lt Grayburn's platoon was ordered to assault and capture the far end of the bridge. As he led his men forward they came under immediate enemy fire from 20mm, rifle and machine guns, almost at once Grayburn was wounded in the shoulder. With heavy casualties, and without cover, the platoon dashed forward. Seeing the hopelessness of the action they were forced to retreat. Lt. Grayburn directed the withdrawal, and remained exposed to fire whilst ensuring that all the survivors got back off the bridge and into cover.
