On the 8th the attack began, supported by a massive weight of artillery fire, rocket concentrations and by tanks.
Again the Regiment was to advance after a preliminary attack by the 4th Royal Welch Fusiliers had secured a firm base.
With the Highland Light Infantry on its right B Company was to seize the corner of the Reichswald (796541) and A Company the cross-tracks (795535).
They met little opposition, but took many prisoners who had been dazed by the weight of the preliminary barrage.
B Company provided the first British troops to cross the German frontier in this area.
C and D Companies advanced through the leading companies and, meeting little opposition, reached their objectives successfully—the high ground of the Branden Berg (808537).
A total of 115 prisoners were taken during the day.
In the evening heavy shelling of Regimental headquarters wounded the doctor and caused considerable casualties among the intelligence section and signallers.
