1944 - 2nd (Airborne) Bn, Oxf & Bucks LI – LE MESNIL.
Another quiet day, the troops are already showing some benefit from their sleep.
All men had a rough bath during the day.
Intermittent mortar & shell fire continues but does not seriously interfere with rest now.
1944 – 1st Buckinghamshire Battalion:- NORMANDY.
The remainder of the Battalion moved into Ouistreham and Riva Bella and complete responsibility for the ground and air defence of the locks (the local anti-aircraft was placed under our command) was assumed.
So for all practical purposes, after only twelve days of active operations, No. 6 Beach Group ceased to exist, although it continued to live on paper for another three weeks, and the Battalion reverted to an infantry role.
