Fallen Soldiers’ Grave Markers at Groesbeek and Holten Cemeteries in the Netherlands

The Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band attended ceremonies honouring the fallen soldiers at Groesbeek and Holten Cemeteries in early May.  We paid tribute to the men of Bruce County who died in the liberation of the Netherlands.  We located the graves in these cemeteries of about 30 Bruce men killed in action.  After the official ceremonies, some of us played bagpipes at the graves and also placed a small plaque at each grave.

    Thank you!
    He has just had another great grandson!
    Rowan John Alphonse Anderson!

    We never knew him but we are proud of his sacrifice and his legacy. His Son John (my Father) was very proud of him and loved his memory dearly.

    Thank you again
    The Andersons
