Orders were received for a diversionary attack designed to assist the 43rd Division in its southward advance east of the Reichswald.
This was to be one of the fiercest battles of the campaign. B Company was directed on to the houses at 901476 and C Company on to Asperberg (895472) and the house at 897473. The enemy were later discovered to be from the 115th Panzer Grenadier Regiment and the 2nd Parachute Regiment, with orders to resist at all costs, and they had a fanatical determination to carry out their orders.
Within an hour both companies were on their objectives, but the enemy continued to fight fiercely from house to house and room to room in C Company's area.
In the whole operation forty-two prisoners were taken and forty Germans killed. The Regiment lost seventeen killed, twenty-two wounded, and one missing, believed killed.
