She attached the ribbon of the Militairy Willemsorder 4th class to the regimental standard of the polish parachutist brigade.

Better late then never I suppose. In a way the Queen fullfills one of her fathers last wishes, he tried for years to get the Polish brigade recognised for their contribution. There was quite a lot of publicity about this, and the event was even shown live on television.

From what I have read the polish brigade got the blame (from supreme command) for the failed operation Market Garden in 1944, which was unjust. As I said, Prince Bernhard, many war veterans and others 'battled' for years to get these heroes recognised in The Netherlands, and finally they are.

From the Benelux Royals MB, a videolink posted by Bart. The Queens speech was in english btw.


Apparently Queen Wilhelmina already signed the decision to give the Polish brigade this honour in 1946!!! But under British pressure it had to be withdrawn.
