43 Division was trained and equiped for assault crossing and each brigade had 100 Dukw's. As we all know, 5 DCLI "dashed" to Driel on the tanks of 4/7 Dragoon Guards. But why not in their DUKW's? Reason for my asking is that 1 Airborne Division in Oosterbeek clearly thought that after the arrival of 5 DCLI in Driel on 22 September, they would cross the Rhine River. A hopeful Phantom message from 1 Airborne Division, send 1330 23 September: "As soon as DCLI are across capture high ground overlooking Ferry to help crossing of armour."
