Text on poster

Nederland zal herrijzen. Nederland bevrijd door de Geallieerden, de Irene Brigade en de Binnenlandsche Strijdkrachten (B.S.). 5 mei 1945

In Godes vrees te leven
Heb ick altijt betracht
Daerom ben ick verdreven
Om Landt; om Luyd ghebracht;
Maer Godt zal mij regeren
Als een goed instrument
Dat ick sal wederkeeren
In mijnen Regiment

Mijn scilt ende betrouwen
Syt ghy; o God mijn Heer!
Op u soo wil ick bouwen
Verlaet my nimmermeer!
Dat ick doch vroom mach blijven,
U dienaer taller stont
De tyranny vedrijven
Die mij mijn hert doorwont.

H.M. Wilhelmina Koningin der Nederlanden
H.K.H. Prinses Juliana Z.K.H. Prins Bernhard

Hulde en dank aan hen die vielen. Land- zee- en luchtmacht
