1944 - 2nd (Airborne) Bn, Oxf & Bucks LI – CHATEAU ST COME. (NORMANDY)
Last night patrols did more good work in pinpointing enemy posns on our front.
Enemy mortaring and shelling has been on a slight scale to-day and we only suffered one casualty.
The ½ issue of bread since the start of the campaign; it was only enough for 2oz per man but it is hoped that the ration will be increased to 4oz to-morrow.
