This Day in History: 1944-09-26

The 1st Battalion took part in an operation to breach the Gothic Line at Monte Reggiano. It was tough fighting against a determined enemy, under heavy shelling, and in very poor weather. The diarist described it as ‘an ordeal almost as severe as that of Cassino’. On 3 October the Battalion was withdrawn prior to the 4th Indian Division moving to Greece.  Click here to read an account of the campaign.
