    Number 3 Troop of 612 Field Squadron, Royal Engineers were attached to H.Q. 8th Rifle Brigade on the above date, during operation 'Goodwood'.

    At some point during the day, at location 098653 which plots as Le Mesnil Freemantel Farm, 9 O/R's were wounded and one killed, Sgt King, along with damage ('Y' casualties??) to two Half Tracks, (these were, the day after, recovered to H.Q. Harbour).

    Anyone know anything from the HQ 8RB War Diary, or anything else for that matter, that might put some more details on this action please?
