On the 25th of September 2019 there will be two ceremonies commemorating those lives lost in Schaarsbergen and in Hees, Nijmegen as a result of a 2TAF operation against an anti-aircraft position at Schaarsbergen, in which Mitchells from 320 (Dutch) Squadron and 98 Squadron took part.

The first memorial service will start at 11am in Schaarsbergen village church, and the second at 4pm in St. Peter’s church in Hees. This second will have the unveiling of a plaque for the victims of the 98 Squadron Mitchell FW-211, followed by an overflight by the Dutch Mitchell “Sarinah”.
