Youtube VT - Battle for s-Hetogenbosch October 1944 by Charles Margry

Discussion in '53rd (Welsh) Division' started by Matthew Mockford, Nov 6, 2020.

  1. I’ve just watched the mentioned VT on YouTube hoping to hear some detail on the 1/5 Welch assault across the bridge opposite the train station. 1hour an 9 minutes in the VT stops just as Maj Barney McCall, the Coy Comd of the assault Coy, starts to recite his actions.

    I subsequently found another version in Dutch which finishes the Maj’s piece which only covers the occupation of a couple of houses on the other side of the bridge. Then the VT switches to the 7RWF bridgehead on the southern bridges with attached armour and their move North, but doesn’t return to the 1/5. Does any one have any info on the 1/5 Welch’s actions in the final stages of the battle?

    Thank you in advance and any information, direction or guidance is very much appreciated
