Sad news from The Arnhem 1944 Fellowship by it’s Honorary Secretary John Gerring,

I regret to advise you of the passing of Luis DiMarco, Signals Platoon, HQ Coy, 1st Parachute Battalion at Arnhem. Luis was personal signalman to Lt Colonel Dobie and got as far as the Onderlangs (the lower road) with the 1st Battalion on their push towards the Arnhem road bridge. Luis eventually made his way back into the perimeter and crossed the Rhine in Operation Berlin.

Luis has been a regular attendee at the September commemorations for many years and will be greatly missed. Luis passed away peacefully on Wednesday 5th May aged 98.  Our thoughts are with his family.

May he Rest in Peace.
