The Highland Light Infantry of Canada war diary reports on October 12, 1944: It is now 0200 hrs and the situation is well in hand. A platoon of "A" Coy has filled in the gap which resulted when one platoon of "D" Coy was overran by an enemy fighting patrol. There is still some enemy mortar and shell fire being brought to bear on the postion. 
Prisoners of war (PWs) captured on our front have now been identified as 5 Coy 1037 Regt. SDGs (Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders) reported at 0843 hrs that they are moving in on the left side of their objective. Their attack seems to be going well.
At 1200 hrs we have just moved our Battalion HQ to a new location a little farther up the street. Shell fire and mortar fire is not so intense here as it was at our old location. We are clearing the dyke to our front this afternoon. "H" hour is at 1500 hrs. This enemy position has given us a great deal of trouble with small arms fire and reducing our movement to a minimum. At 1520 hrs today Brigade reported that our supporting shell fire was falling short and landing on NNS (North Nova Scotia Highlanders) positions. The attack has gone well and we are now consolidated on our objective. At 1545 hrs "D" Coy were shelled and requested return fire on target 1296 which was carried out successfully. Some mortar targets were also taken on by our Shelldrake. Target 436 was taken on at 1615 hrs and was very effective as enemy had left their trenches and were retreating. Our objective has been taken and heavy casualties inflicted on the enemy. 18 PWs have been sent in by "D" Coy. Were are now to sit tight and hold our ground. Our Companies are spread out along the 2nd dyke. We are sending out patrols to contact the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment.
