Most of 1st Para was cut off from the objective at Arnhem.
Only 2nd Battalion Paras under Lt-Col John Frost reached
the bridge and set up defensive positions in the buildings around it.
2 Para, desperately holding off increasingly heavy attacks
on the buildings they were defending on either side of the
north end of the bridge, was running out of food, water
and ammunition. On the night of 25th Sept the survivors
evacuated Arnhem across the Rhine.
