Rfm 1 Pl, A Coy, 2 KRRC, landed by LCT as part of 4th Armd Bde on D+3, Juno chaotic, uncleared, eager to get forward but from back of half track couldn’t see. You are only interested in what you are doing & what is around you, not the bigger battle picture. You shoot & ask questions later - it is kill or be killed. At the end of hostilities I looked around & of my platoon of 30 who landed in Normandy only 3 were left. Belgium children shot.
