In late September the 51st Highland Division moved east through France and into Belgium to relive the 15th Scottish Division on a line from St Odenrode to Eindhoven protecting the supply corridor to Nijmegen. The place of 154 Brigade still at Dunkirk, was taken by 158 Brigade of the 53rd Division but 154 Brigade returned to the Division on 19 October. The next phase of the campaign was to establish Antwerp as an operating port and clear the Germans south of the River Mass.
