A few hours later the section assembles to go back. The attack has been postponed. Another section may have to go back another day to do the same again.
The situation lasted till the end of October. It was then almost a month ago the division had crossed the Antwerp-Turnhout canal. Then another offensive started towards Breda.
It was a "near run thing" until then...
Many thanks go to all the participants of living history group "Pattern '37", our photographers (R.J , M.R and S.VE). and the towns of Oostmalle and Merksplas.
