The Tickets

As it is always said that these were made from metal of the remains of gliders found at the former Landingzone, until now (January 2020) there aren't any documents who prove this, nor if they where made in Holland or in the United Kingdom.
(This set belonged to the Father of Cor Janse, of Wolfheze, who was invited to the premiere in Arnhem in 1946, his dad was with the Wolfheze Resistance). Collection Philip Reinders)


There are 2 original version of these tickets, there is one version which was made for the release of the 60th Anniversary of the making of the movie (see below)

On Ebay there is another copy available, however it is stated by the seller that it is a copy, however it said to made from the original cast??? (I would not order it anyway, as I have heard from two people who ordered a copyfrom this seller but never receveived it) one has to wonder how long it will take till it turns up as an original wich are sold nowadays for at least

£140.00 (155 euro) or more.

Several tickets that came up for sale throughout the years on several sites.

The 2nd version which was also given/sold to visitor of the movie, this was issued to those who watched the movie in Canada.

Two replica tickets I bought in 2022. Not able to find out who made them, the came from the UK. One weights 21gram the other 23grams. The original tickets all weight 25gram.

Any information about the production of these, replica tickets is most welcome.

A bronze ticket which was probably made in the fifties or sixties as Group price for the Airborne walk in September.         (Collection P. Reinders)
