Would be nice . . . even down to brigade would be helpful.

As I understand the doctrine of the day, divisions advanced as columns. The moment the leading brigade attacked and consolidated, the next brigade passed through, then the third brigade, then the first one again. In this way, working on a narrow front, a division could mount two or three brigade attacks in a da, each with the full weight of divisional artillery behind it.

Note also that by d +7 (24 Sept '44), the 43rd (Wessex) Division has taken over from Guards Armoured Division as the vanguard of the advance to relieve Arnhem and had linked up with the Poles at Driel.
