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 On 3rd October the Battalion was withdrawn prior to the 4th Indian Division moving to Greece.  Click here to read an account of the campaign.
