So I have been working on the Bronco Ordanace QF 6lbs Airborne with Crew for some time and decided to do my first dio of British Airborne Forces near Oosterbeek, Netherlands in September of 1944. This is my first dio, so I am sure I have made mistakes. It is very much a work in progress, but here is the base and my layout so far.

I recall reading how 1st Airborne used the sidewalks to anchor the spades on their 6 pounders. Besides Alan57's dio of a 17 pounder and crew, you're the only other person I've seen that's included this in their work. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing this completed.

Not sure about the sidewalks, but my dio is loosely based on this photo.
