"OVER TO YOU." The Official news sheet of 5th Battalion COLDSTREAM GUARDS. Published Daily Price: - Gratis No. 25 Monday 24th July 1944. LATEST BATTLE NEWS. Our line now runs excl EMIEVILLE incl FRENOUVILLE - incl FOUR incl BOURGEBUS - incl VERRIERES - incl ST MARTIN DE FONTENAY, though there was an enemy penetration South West of VERRIERES yesterday. There was little activity yesterday and the enemy opposite us although still pretty active at times seem to have quietened down. All along the front the Germans have shown themselves reluctant to give ground and once more they have rushed up troops in front of us and formed a fairly thickly held position which it is unlikely they will abandon; in fact they might even counter attack as our advance from CAEN is in a direction in which they are very sensitive and causes them considerable uneasiness. The 88mm gun in front of No.s 2 and 4 Companies has a busy day. For fun or on the chance of it being an Observation Post they shot up our Church Tower. It was, for an Anti-Tank gun, an almost unparalleled piece of bad shooting and the first three shots were all misses. From one or two places you can see it quite clearly when it fires, so that we have been able to discourage it, though not as yet to knock it out. Battalion H.Q. suffers from the presence of an over-affectionate and bomb-happy goat. NEW COMMANDING OFFICER. Lieutenant-Colonel M.E. ADEANE has taken over the command of the Battalion with Major B.E. LUARD, M.C. as Second-in-Command. PERSONAL ITEMS. Lieutenant-Colonel The Lord STRATHEDEN who was wounded in both legs during the shelling on Thursday is not seriously ill, but it will be a long time before he is fit again. News has been received from the C.C.S. that Major W.S. STEWART BROWN, D.S.O., is better than expected, and that he is now off the danger list. Forward Divisional H.Q. came in for a bit of shelling the other day and several people were killed and the General wounded, but it is expected that he will be in action in a day or two. SUCCESSFUL RECOVERY OF VEHICLES. Recovery of our knocked out tanks has been very successful and 50% of those put out of action in the battle are now in action again, whereas all the enemy vehicles knocked out are in our hands. The Battalion Rear Link received a direct hit for the second time. BATTALION CASUALTIES.
