1944 – 1st Buckinghamshire Battalion - NORMANDY
On the 10th July No. 6 Beach Group was dissolved officially. It had, in fact, disintegrated before this date, as its components had passed one by one to the command of higher formations. For the first time since the 5th April, 1943, Battalion headquarters was left with only the Battalion to command—a strange sensation. As the staff captain was without a group to administer Captain J. D. Bicknell was ordered to join headquarters, No. 101 Beach Sub-Area, which had formed a staff to move into Caen as soon as the town fell. He left the Battalion, with which he had served uninterruptedly since the 27th September, 1940, on the afternoon of the 10th July, 1944.
