WW2 diary of my dad

Sometime ago Hannah asked if her grandfather fought in the war (the Second World War). Good question I thought and I got the box with all the family photos and other stuff out of the attic.

In there was also the notebook /  diary of my Dad. In the first pages photos from the newspaper are pasted from the mobilisation period 1939 - 1940.

Title diary AD Koorneef 

 I'd never before tried to read the handwritten diary which starts on the 17th of September 1944: the start of Operation Market Garden. After reading it I typed the diary in a Word file, see the attachments below. The scans of the diary are also included.

Some parts of the diary were told by my dad to me but I didn't know everything.
