I made assumptions. That a book published in 1945 by the Division itself would have up to date information (August 1945) on casualties that at the time (Aug 1944) were just listed as MIA. I went through the sub-unit listings of KIA , which is in in alphabetical order, to get a days total.Richard Anderson wrote:
To clarify Michael, 7 August is the date their status was changed from MIA to KIA? If so, then they could have been killed anytime since 0600 20 June when the first MIA of the division was recorded.
This is the best view I can get from Google showing the position of the Tigers on Pierres ridge and on the far ridge the position of 23 Hussars.
Modern IGN Map. Note the deep valley between the two sides. 1947 air view of the exact same area as above. Map reference for Tigers the pink/yellow spot.
The distance from the map reference to Presles is just over 2km.
