1230 - Left COESFELD. Moved along Divisional axis, already cleared by 5 Para to GREVEN 9288. From here we moved up into the wooded area 947916 our Task being to protect the Divisions North flank. One Battalion of parachutists is across the DORTMUND-EMS canal. In getting into position we met fire from AA guns & small arms fire from Flak personnel. C Coy suffered some casualties including Maj. Molloy. Medium artillery helped to keep the Flak guns fairly quiet but there was only a very narrow safety margin. The whole operation was rendered very difficult owing to the lack of any maps better than 1/100,000 & by the darkness of the night.
