Players and Club staff visit grave of West Bromwich-born soldier
ALBION on Friday afternoon paid their respects at the Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery in Holland.
The Baggies playing squad, Head Coach Tony Pulis and Club staff made a poignant visit to the site in the Dutch city, where they had been taking part in the FOX Sports Cup.
Everyone present on the Club's pre-season trip took part in a tour of the Airborne Museum 'Hartenstein', which was the headquarters of the British Airborne Division in September 1944.
Players and staff then made the walk to the Airborne Cemetery, where 1,759 casualties of the Second World War are buried or commemorated.
A wreath was laid at the grave of West Bromwich-born Major Francis Raymond Tate of The 2nd Battalion, Parachute Regiment Army Air Corps, formerly Royal Warwickshire Regiment, who died in Arnhem on September 21, 1944, aged 39.
