Remembrance Day 2020 SS "Groningen"

Shiny Silver (Limited Edition)

The liberation of the Netherlands, from September 1944 to April 1945, played a key role in the culmination of the Second World War, as the Allied forces closed in on Germany from all sides. The First Canadian Army played a major role in the liberation of the Dutch people who had suffered terrible hunger and hardship under the increasingly desperate German occupiers.

The First Canadian Army also played a leading role in opening Belgium and the Netherlands' Scheldt estuary, gateway to the port of Antwerp. Access to this port was essential to maintain supply lines to the Allied armies as they continued their push toward Germany.

Under the command of General Henry Crerar, the First Canadian Army was international in character. In addition to the 2nd Canadian Corps, the 1st British Corps, and the 1st Polish Armoured Division, at various times American, Belgian, and Dutch soldiers were also included as units. The strength of this army included approximately 175,000 Canadian soldiers, and ranged anywhere from 200,000 to over 450,000 when including the soldiers from other nations.

More than 7,600 Canadians died in the nine-month campaign to liberate the Netherlands, a tremendous sacrifice in the cause of freedom.

Additional info for Groningen

In April of 1945, the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division was given the task to clear the approaches and capture the city of Groningen, in northeast Holland. What they found was a city that had been transformed into a fortified stronghold. They met fierce resistance from over 7000 German soldiers, bolstered by a core of SS troops. Snipers were everywhere, while machine-gunners fired at the Canadians as they advanced through the streets.

After four days of fighting, much of it room-to-room, the Germans surrendered on 16 April. The 2nd Division had secured the largest city in northern Netherlands and taken over 5,000 prisoners at the cost of 206 casualties.

Knowledge Base

  • How do I get an activeringscode?

    With each travelbug, travel tag, geocoin of other trackable, you need an activeringscode to activate your trackable at Geocaching.com.
    Sometimes, the code is already added, e.g. with most travelbugs. It is then available at the paper card which is included with the product.
    With the other trackables, you need to request the activastioncode at our website via the following link:
    Request activeringscode.

  • Can I define my own trackingcode?

    Sorry, no that is not possible.

  • Can I use my own existing tracking code?

    You can use your own code on certain products.
    This must be a Geocaching.com trackable code (eg from another travelbug or trackable), so no self-invented code.
    With those products you can see a label with a mark that you can use your own code.
    In the product there is a separate tab with a field where you can enter the code. Make sure you save this 

  • I want to use my own Trackable code for a sticker or decall?

    That is possible. You can enter your own code for various stickers, which we then use for the sticker.
    This code must be an existing trackable code from geocaching.com (eg from an earlier travelbug).
    You can enter this in the 'Own input (...)' tab that you see to the right of the product information.
    After entering the code, briefly press 'save' so that the code is stored with the product and then put it in your shopping cart.
     

  • Do I need to provide my own travelbug/trackable code?

    No, with most trackables, a code is already placed on the product in the factory (travel bugs, geocoins, travel tags, etc). For some products (eg the personal tag or stickers) you can specify a code that you already have from another Geocaching product. Or if you want a sticker made with an existing code.

    If you do not have that code, no problem, we will provide a code.
