On 17th April, the Inniskilling's supported by the Royal Scots from 4th Armoured Brigade, made a frontal attack on Soltau.
They were assisted by 7th RTR with Crocodile Flame Thrower Tanks from 31st Army Tank Brigade and Wasp Flame Thrower Carriers, along with the RHA and 7.2 inch guns from AGRA (Army Group Royal Artillery).
The Flame throwers lead most of the attack, clearing the enemy from the woods and the town, which fell by nightfall.
