The routes from England to Holland for theMarket Garden operation varied. It depended on the outfit and the day.

Below are the two different routes clearly visible. The northern and Southern route.

Each route had three lanes.

 

The map was created and kindly given to me by my Remember September 1944 Foundation buddy Tom Peeters.
