'B' Company 8RS claim they were the first troops to enter the ruins of Goch. Picture and caption from "FIRST O' FOOT", the Battalion’s newspaper, Serial Number 8, dated 26 January 1946, which was published in Germany by the Battalion’s Education Department. Another souvenir from Private William Charles Russell's  kitbag. Joe Brown.
