Title:
C Platoon Forming Convoy for Monte Cassino
Date:
1944 February 5
Description:

Being "Seasoned Troops", we had been chosen to work again with our old friends, the Kiwis (now reformed into the New Zealand Corps) for the second major assault on Monte Cassino. Its purpose was to drive out the Germans and open the road to Rome, up the Liri Valley. So we left the rain and mud of San Vito without regrets and drove for two harrowing days over the Appenines and down into the rain and mud of Presenzano. There we joined with the 1st New Zealand Casualty Clearing Station (CCS) for the job at hand.

Location: At San Vito.
