After their rebuff by Siegel's Panzers along the Salbey Stream, the Fife and Forfars fought and manuevered their way towards Grainville. The lessons learned from advancing without infantry into le Haut du Bosq were fresh in the mind of the Yeomanry, and their Shreman tanls stopped short of the ruins of the small town. While they waited for the Cameronians to come up, the Yeomanry sent their reconnaissance troop into Grainville. The first Stuart tank to venture into the twon was knocked out by a Panther tank concealed in the church square. The survivors came roaring out at top speed. At the very moment they were struggling to escape the trap, the Colonel of the Fife and Forfars saw fit to come on the air requesting a precise position report. “Position be buggered!” came the response. . .
Attacker: British (Reconnaissance Troop of Fife and Forfar Yeomanry)
