2014 Borkel Schaft - starting zone

The Market Garden 70 years memorial events took place in 2014. A large group of World War 2 vehicles and tanks were going to travel the same route as in 1944 – from the Belgium border all the way to Arnhem. This event took several days and all over the towns and other historical places many events and other commemorations were held. 

In Borkel Schaft, near the Belgium border, the British forces started operation Market Garden by entering Dutch soil – liberating Holland. During the 2014 commemorations this is the place where the large group of vehicles and tanks joined up at a (starting) base camp.
