1944 – 2nd (AB) Bn Oxf & Bucks LI – ST RICHER - Normandy:-
Start of the Advance to the River Seine.(Operation Paddle)
At 0300 hrs the Regt moved off behind the 12 DEVONS to relieve 1 SS Bde who were cut off from the rest of the Div on the hills East of BRUCOURT. No communication with 1 SS Bde was possible as the only road leading to them was under heavy mortar fire from enemy posns on the hills EAST and WEST of them. Wireless comn had also broken down. This made the operation rather a hazardous one as not only was it impossible to let 1 SS Bde know that we were coming but there was also only one line of approach and no recce of the route was possible. Despite the difficulties including an extremely dark and wet night the operation was carried out successfully and at 1000 hrs the pursuit of the enemy Eastwards towards the R. Seine continued with 12 Devons leading. Progress was rather slow but by the evening after mopping up minor resistance and capturing a few prisoners, the Regt consolidated astride the road PERIERS ON AUGE - VAUVILLE 2978 just North of the village of HEULAND.
