    • War Diary: 1st Battalion IRISH GUARDS, September 1939 - July 1944
    • 27 April 1943
    • Points 151 & 187
    • The Battalion was preparing to take part in a Brigade attack on the hills to the East of DJEBEL BOU AOUKAZ, our objectives being Points 212, 214, 181 and 128, Zero Hour 1900 hours, when the time was put forward by Division and the Zero Hour became 1600 hours.
    • 1530 Hours The Battalion began to move out of its positions, so as to reach the Start Line, the forward edge of Olive Grove, East of Point 187.
    • This movement was observed by enemy O.Ps. and from then until Point 212 was finally captured, the Battalion was subjected to continuous fire from shells, M.Gs, mortars, and, peculiarly unpleasant, six-barrel mortars.
    • The Battalion advanced, in broad daylight, across an open yellow cornfield and finally reached the Olive Grove.
    • This grove gave little shelter, and was in addition, a German registered mortar task.
    • Casualties up to date had been heavy, Captain J.B. FITZGERALD, Lieutenant J.G.A. PYM, and R.Q.M.S. PEILOW being killed, Captain I.H. POWELL-EDWARDS, Lieutenant C.A. LARKING, Lieutenant D.C.W. LLOYD-THOMAS, and Lieutenant D.C. ATTLEE being wounded.
    • Battalion H.Q. had been established on the forward edge of the Olive Grove - the Start Line - and from there the Commanding Officer kept control of the battle, as far as communications would allow.
    • 1900 Hours By now the Companies were very weak - the cornfield and olive groves are strewn with wounded men, and groups of walking wounded were making their way back to the R.A.P.
    • It was now obviously impossible to carry out the original plan.
    • Nos. 1 and 4 Companies were being held up in front of Point 212; Nos. 2 and 3 Companies, on their way to Point 128, had suffered heavy casualties, and had run into German Armoured Cars and tanks in the olive groves.
    • The Commanding Officer decided to concentrate on Point 212.
    • An artillery concentration was put down on this Point and on a farmhouse which was blocking the approach to it.
    • Captain O.S. CHESTERTON, though wounded, led No. 1 Company into the attack again; some 50 German infantry were seen to be leaving the hill in some haste.
    • Battalion H.Q., with what men it could collect, advanced to the top of Point 212.
    • Two enemy officers were taken prisoner.
    • Lieutenant C.D. KENNARD with 30 men of No. 3 Company then arrived, followed by Lieutenant T.C. KEIGWIN with 25 men of No. 2 Compay.
    • The force on the hill now amounted to 170 all ranks.
    • 1930 Hours It was getting dark, and the stretcher bearers were working hard, trying to collect all the wounded men and bring them to the line of the road, where they were collected by the ambulance.
    • The force established itself on Ponts 212 and 214 and the ridge connecting them, digging itself in as best as it could in the rocky ground, in preparation for a dawn counter-attack.
    • 2230 Hours Three carriers with rations, water and ammunition made their way to the Eastern foot of the hill, and a large carrying party brought up the supplies.
    • No sleep was had that night.

    Major George Cecil Brooke, Border Regiment.

    On the 28th April he was killed at approximately 1.20 pm. when the enemy, who were in vastly superior numbers, now started to come in closer range under a heavy and accurate covering fire, and many casualties were among the officers-Major Brooke,Captain Head and Muriel and Lieutenant Taylor killed within a few hundred yards of one another.
