The big battle SW of CAEN still continues but most of the fighting is now well beyond our range of vision and the majority of the sp arty has moved up so the noise has not been so deafening.
On our own front the enemy still appears to be occupying the same positions and 'D' Coy snipers claimed another two hits, otherwise a quiet day.

Remembering today – L/Cpl T W HEWITT
“As with many tours in Northern Ireland, if tragedy strikes then it does so early. Our tour this year was to be no exception and on the first day that the Battalion arrived in Ireland Lance Corporal Hewitt was shot and murdered in Belleek by a gunman who fired from across the border. Lance Corporal Hewitt's murder came as a shock to everyone in the Battalion, particularly as the style of his murder was so typical of the normal pattern of terrorist activity in Fermanagh. It occurred without any apparent warning, at a time of year when the streets of Belleek were full of foreign tourists.”
