5 August, 2013


After the landings in Normandy the Allied forces entered France to the city of Caen. His objective was to take the city from the north shore of the river Orne. However it was not easy, and up to four offensives were carried out to achieve the objective. The British 7th Armoured Division, after his participción in Egypt, took part in the landings, and along with the Armored Division of the Irish Guards and the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division circled the Caen left flank facing the 1st and 12th SS Panzer Division at the south of the city.

This fourth offensive was called Operation Goodwood, and became one of the largest armored operations of World War II. The 1st and the 8th Battalion Rifles took part in the offensive in support of the armoured units. The 1st Battalion fought across France, Belgium and Holland, honoring their origins as one of the most famous regiments of the British army in all his military history.
