The day passed quietly, our artillery and L.T.M.'s carrying out registration.
At 7 p.m. the enemy, after a brisk bombardment of our line, developed an attack against C Company, moving in extended order from Q.14.d. against Bacquerolles Farm. This attack was beaten off by rifle fire. Soon afterwards a report was received that large numbers of the enemy were collecting in the houses in Q.14.b. and d. Our artillery heavily shelled this target, and the enemy must have lost great numbers.
At 7.30 p.m. B Company (Captain Stanley) carried out an attack on the houses in Q.20 in accordance with operation orders. The operation was entirely successful, and by 9 p.m. the objectives had been captured.
Unfortunately, the Division on our right, which had been relied upon to co-operate, did not effect a junction with B Company's right flank, and the enemy, who were in large numbers along the road east of the Hennebecq, and were strongly reinforced from La Pierre-au-Beure, commenced to counter-attack at 9.30 p.m., and threatened to envelop B Company's flank in the houses at Q.20.d.o.6 and 3.7. Orders were then given at 10.15 p.m. for B Company to withdraw to their original position. This they did, bringing in all the wounded.
During the night our artillery shelled La Pierre-au-Beure, Q.20, and Q.14.b. and d.
A German prisoner was taken by B Company.

1945 - 2nd (Airborne) Bn, Oxf & Bucks LI - NWE Celle
Todays activities entirely dependent upon the progress of the 15th Division in the advance to UELZEN. Owing to cratering of the main road & stubborn resistance in the town, we were unable to move up the axis until the afternoon, & even then progress was slow. We eventually took over the village of NETTELKAMP (9179) from the 9th. Bn. Cameronians. The Regiment did not arrive until about 2000 hrs. There had been considerable fighting in the area the previous night & during the day & it was known that P.G. troops were in the vicinity. Patrols eastwards & North East during the night made no contact however.
