Hello to all
; a little more.........
Armored Infantry in Action.
On crossing the Highway Assevillers—Barleux, the Company attached several scattered infantry units whose attack had been halted by enemy machine-gun fire. Having barely crossed the road, the Company met heavy machinegun and mortar fire from the village of Belloy -en-Santerre.
Without regard or distraction, the Company continued to follow the route of the tanks, which were driving a spearhead towards Ablaincourt.
At the Highway Estrèes - Deniecourt, Villers-Carbonnel., hostile artillery opened fire attempting to prevent our crossing the road, Machine-gun fire came from Estrèes-Deniecourt and Berny en Santerre.
In spite of heavy firing, the enemy failed to deter the Company as it continued the march by detour around the points of artillery concentration.
A narrow path between Estrèes-Deniecourt and Berny en-Smterre was traversed at a high rate of speed under heavy enemy machine gun fire from both sides.
