Intelligence Officer to Brigade H.Q. to collect D.F. tasks.
St. MAUVIEU has been the scene of very heavy fighting so that few houses are intact and there is a great deal of debris and destruction about.
It has also been necessary to bury a great number of dead Germans and animals that hardly improve the amenities.
A large quantity of German equipment has been salvaged and put to the Battalion’s use, in particular a VOLKSWAGEN for the Padre, 2 M.C.s [?], several field telephones, camouflage suits for the snipers, medical supplies, and quantities of German documents.
During the night No. 4 Company was shelled frequently but the troops are well dug in and there were no casualties.
