I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE KNOW MANY PEOPLE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE BATTLE FOR HILL 112,I SUSPECT NOT MANY IN BRITAIN,PERHAPS THE VETERANS WHO WHERE IN THE BATTLE,AND STILL ALIVE,I AM SO DISAPPOINT,BUT ASK THE FRENCH,THEY KNOW MORE ABOUT IT,WHEN WE GO TO NORMANDY IN JUNE TO CELEBRATE THE INVASION ON JUNE 6Tth,THE WELCOME THEY GIVE TO ALL THE VETERANS IS SOMETHING WE  THE VETERANS IT IS VERY EMBARRASING

I WILL NOW GO BACK TO THE DAY OF MY LANDING,IT AS ON JUNE THE 24th ON GOLD BEACH, I WAS A SERGEANT GUNNER IN THE 112 FIELD REGIMENT 43th WESSEX DIVISION.

OUR FIRST ACTION THE EVENING WAS TO SUPPORT THE 15th SCOTTISH DIVISION, WITH ANOTHER 64,000 MEN IN OPERATION EPSOM,THIS WENT ON FROM THE TH 5th JUNE UNTIL THE 30th OF JUNE, FROM THAT DATE THERE WAS WHAT WAS KNOWN AS A STALEMATE BETWEEN THE 5th OF JUNE AND THE 10th OF JULY, ALL WE WHERE DOING WAS HOLDING 7 PANZER DIVISIONS, WHILST THE TWO AMERICAN DIVISIONS WHO LANDED ON OMAHA BEACH AND THE OTHER LANDED ON UTA BEACH, WHERE MAKING THEIR WAY TO THERE  WAY FORWARD TO  CAPTURE THE PORT OF CHERBOURGE.
