1945- 2nd (Airborne) Bn, Oxf & Bucks LI - NWE Stockhausen
0730 - C Coy in the lead, riding on Churchills, we started to cross the river WESER at TODTENHAUSEN 8116. Considerable opposition, chiefly in the form of "BAZOOKA BOYS" was met around KUTENHAUSEN, & two Churchills were hit. C Coy however made their way to the river bank & we prepared for the crossing. During these preparations we came under heavy shell-fire - chiefly air-burst from the far bank, but the Small Arms fire was negligible & the air-bursts caused only 8 casualties. B Coy then did the assault & cleared WIETERSHEIM. They were followed by D & A Coy's. C remaining on the West bank.
Meanwhile the RE's aided by our pioneer platoon built a raft for the essential transport, pending the completion of a bridge further downstream. D & A Coy's pushed on to FRILLE 8516. During the night of the crossing the village of WIETERSHEIM were repeatedly shelled by AA guns & nebelwerfers.
