I'll take a stab at it

For their part of Operation Plunder the British 46 RM Commando was tasked with capturing the Keramag factory, which was located just north of the smoking pile of rubble that was once the city of Wesel. This was accomplished with minimal casualties, and as the troops began infiltrating their way into the large complex they discovered they just captured a factory that made...what?

The man was a beach master of the VII Corps and on his body were found the invasion plans by a German Cossack, or something along those line i believe :milsmile:
