Do you know where this was taken. I have little to no information on the role of the 15th Division during Market Garden. I know they were part of XII Corps and therefore guarding the left flank of XXX Corps but they seem to have started off late and did not press forward as fast as was expected. I also have so far failed to indentify the place they started from and the bridge they crossed over the Meuse-Escaut Canal.
