On the 2nd the Regiment came under command of the 8th Armoured Division for the pursuit of the enemy, who had begun to withdraw in order to avoid being outflanked by the American drive towards the Rhine from the south.
The pursuit meant travelling in Kangaroos and dealing with any opposition which hindered the advancing armour. Deploy¬ment of infantry and a preliminary bombardment were usually sufficient to force the enemy to withdraw.
On the 2nd the first of these kind of engagements was fought in the area of Weeze and Neuhaus (949362). Little opposition was met and patrols pushed forward to Kevelaer (9632). Twenty prisoners were taken, including a few members of the Volksturm.
Some houses were booby-trapped and caused four casualties.
