At 1330 hrs Capt. P.E. Gerahty took out two platoons of "C" Coy along the same route as was followed by "B" Coy yesterday. Today however, enemy were encountered, some on the main road just South of POLAU, others in the woods due West of POLAU. A small battle took place during the course of which one German was known to be killed & six "soft" vehicles destroyed. Our casualty was one N.C.O. wounded. Tonight the woods are blazing in the area in which "C" Coy discovered the enemy. Our mortars fired 200 phosphorous bombs to get the fire going. Several deserters having had enough of this have come in this evening.
