● Omdat de Britten tijden Op. Market Garden ver van hun doelwit (de bruggen bij Arnhem) landden werd op 17 seven 1944 een speciale eenheid met 32 jeeps voorzien van machine geweren (bestaande uit de 1e Airborne Reconnaisance Squadron + 9th Field Company Royal Engineers) ingevlogen die snel van het landingsterrein naar de Rijnbrug zouden scheuren via een aparte route langs het spoor.
●Deze ‘coup de main’ eenheid kreeg later de naam ‘Freddie Gough’s Specials’ naar de commanderende officier Maj. Freddie Gough.
●Het plan mislukte volledig mede door toedoen van een Duitse SS- trainingseenheid van Sepp Krafft die toevallig bij Wolfheze in de bossen lag. Een aantal jeeps slaagde er later die dag toch in om de Rijnbrug te bereiken. De noordzijde van deze brug was toen reeds bezet door Lt.Col. Frost’s 2e Batallion
