Hi all, Just looking for information and associations with the Sherwood Rangers in February 1945 For a lot of which they seem to have been in "Operation Veritable" Footnotes for which are: First Canadian Army losses from "8 February ... [to] ... 10 March were ... 1,049 officers and 14,585 other ranks; the majority of these were British soldiers". Canadian losses amounted to 379 officers and 4,925 other ranks, the vast majority being lost during Operation Blockbuster. Total allied losses in Operations Veritable/Blockbuster and Grenade amounted to 22,934 men. Canadian First Army captured 22,239 prisoners during the operation, and the intelligence section estimated the number of German soldiers killed or made "long-term wounded" to have amounted to 22,000 men. In conjunction with Operation Grenade, the combined allied effort inflicted approximately 90,000 casualties on the German army And do get a small ref in here: : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Veritable On 22 February, once clear of the Reichswald (German, Imperial Forest), and with the towns of Kleve and Goch in their control, the offensive was renewed as Blockbuster and linked up with the US 9th Army near Geldern on 4 March.
