1944 - 2nd (Airborne) Bn, Oxf & Bucks LI – CHATEAU ST COME.
Our patrol activity last night was on a small scale but useful infm was gained concerning some of the enemy disposns on our front as indicated by 12 DEVON. To-day has been a quiet one - though "A" Coy suffered a few casualties from enemy arty and mortar fire. Coys have spent the day making any necessary adjustments in their layout and in generally strengthening our posns. Our snipers have been getting to know the lie of the land but their fd of operations is somewhat cramped as the enemy posns are within 250 yds of our most fwd posns.

The patient vigil of the Battalion snipers was at last rewarded on the 8th July, when first a German officer and later a soldier were knocked off from the Point du Siege at a range of 600 yards.
