Onwards to Arnhem!
Last Friday, the 3rd Monmouthshire lads showed Jerry what for, as they valiantly defended Helvoit Road from an all-out SS panzer assault. Along with the Shermans from 23rd Hussars, and the chaps from division support, and even some heavy artillery support from the Guards, our chaps stopped Jerry dead in their tracks. More than a dozen enemy tanks were destroyed (mostly Pz IV, though initially they were thought to be Tigers from a distance). Jerry was then thrown back into a full retreat and our lads advanced to capture the Vucht Bridges. Hurrah!
