Leadership in Action at Arnhem
Published: October 13th, 2016
I am at Arnhem this week, looking at Leadership in Action. Studying the battle made famous by the film “A Bridge Too Far”, I was touched to see the grave of Lt H Taylor RNF at the Arnhem-Oosterbeek cemetery.
We also studied the outstanding leadership example of Capt Ingram, Royal Fusiliers, who inspired A Coy, 1 KOSB. A Coy had lost all of its officers and was in a very critical condition, and facing two enemy tanks determined to finish the Company off. Under heavy fire Capt Ingram took command of the company and lead a number of offensive actions that destroyed one enemy tank, drove the other off and stabilised the Company front. #lestweforget
