This Day in History: 1944-09-15

On the evening of the 14th September 1944, the First Battalion took over the Castelnuovo position to the north of Pian di Castello from the 3rd/10th Baluchis of the 5th Indian Brigade. The 15th of September was a rare lull in the fighting and a chance to regroup before the Battalion was tasked to conduct an assault to capture Altavelio and the nearby hamlet of Trebbio on the 16th September.  Click here to read an account of the campaign.
