I was recently doing some research on Operation Market Garden at the National Archives in the UK as I wanted to verify the identity of the British RE company  which supported Operation Pegasus 1 the rescue of British paratroopers and air crew by Easy Company 2-506th.  I can confirm that it was 210 Field Company which was a Corps troops unit for 30 Corps. 

I found and read the war diary this included 2 very relevant maps showing the specific launch site for the operation which I thought users of the forum might like to see.  The site was an orchard on the southern river bank opposite the village of Randwijk.  I haven't been to the actual site but have viewed it from the southern bank.  
Hope these 2 maps are of value. Many thanks to Mark Bando for keeping the site going.
