At 14.00 hrs to-day the Regt handed over the defence of BREVILLE to No.4 Commando not without some feeling of regret as we had made ourselves very comfortable and had just begun to dominate effectively with our patrols and snipers "No Mans Land". After handing over we moved about ½ mile southwards and took over from our right hand neighbours the 12 DEVON in defence of the CHATEAU DE ST COME for the second time. The 12 DEVON had held this position for 17 days and were due for a few days rest in Bde res. The 1 RUR had taken over the area of the LE MESNIL X rds 140728 yesterday and are now our right hand neighbours. The take over was carried out without incident and all sub-units were in posn by 1700 hrs.
