Operation Market Garden – IrvinGQ 100 Years of Saving Lives

 Did you know that 75 years ago an allied force of around 35,000 paratroopers including 10,000 British jumped into Arnhem and the surrounding villages.  The British used our IrvinGQ Type X Mk 2 Parachute Pack, designed for low level operations.  Our IrvinGQ parachutes were also used for the resupply missions.
