Buck does not give me the answers to these.... so I am free to make clues.

Buck's signature is usually an image of something close to home, his interests or past experiences..... This has to be Holland... somewhere!

It is a ferry crossing on the River Waal, that according to information found on google earth ....
From Jan 21 to Jan 39, 1945 the Lincoln & Welland Regiment of the Canadian army fought a garrison of German paratroopers for possesion of this small ferry slip (Kapelsche Veer) on the River Maas. (The slip has since filled in). Despite a heavy preliminary artillery bombardment a canoe-borne water assault and dive-bombing by Spitfires, the Canadians suffered nearly 300 casualties before finally subduing the defenders.

Hey PW this is the correct answer obviously. this operation was, to my knowledge, part of operation wacht am Rhein. The goal was to create a bridgehead for a future advance on to Antwerp in order to cut of the Allies north of the assault in the Ardennes entirely. I also heard a story about it being an effort to tie down allied reinforcements much needed in the Ardennes.

Also an RMC and polish armed forces where involved in reducing this bridgehead

Cheers Buck
