Saturday 12th April 1941

We are surrounded; besieged except by sea. It's about 2a.m. and B Troop has just sent for more ammo. They've fired 100 rounds already tonight...

We'll put up a decent show here, no doubt, but many of us took part in the assault on this place, three months ago, so don't feel as hopeful as we normally would do.

Among the 70 odd men in the Regiment now officially posted as missing are Ron Dean, Tiny Jennings, Orrin, “Ciggy” McKeown and Jimmie Fitton. Among missing officers are the Colonel and Major Upton.
