In the morning of 22 September, Major General Stanisław Sosabowski, commander of the 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade, established his headquarters in the house at Molenstraat 12. His bust now overlooks the former headquarters. In a wide circle around the house of miller Beijer, the various army units moved into position. They dug foxholes and set up a defense line.  

From his command post, the general went to inspect his soldiers and, to the great hilarity of his men, he travelled on a ladies' bicycle. 

The bust of Major General Sosabowski, unveiled in September 2020, was created by artist Martin Abspoel. It overlooks the headquarters.
