8th Bn/Royal Warwicks Regt 21 May 1940 Calonne area/Belg

Afternoon everybody
can anyone advise me on the battle which 8/Warwicks were involved in, presumably it was Schedlt (Escaut) defensive actions ? Seems as if the Battalion commander and quite a few of his men were killed 40/50 in all.
thanks
Pete
