I have another page of my granddad’s experience I would like to share. It is about his hedgerow fighting when he had recovered and was put back in the frontlines, dated 16th July:
16th July 1944
Today was good. The weather’s quite sunny, we were told to hold our position back at the barn of Madame Bousel. This is the only comfort I could find in war. I have come back into the frontline to discover most of my friends were K.I.A. In the evening, a German counter attack was formed. Our platoon leader, Lieutenant Greek, was shot between the eyes when he was shouting for orders. I can’t write anymore.
