    Lost in Normandy: The Odyssey of Worthington Force, 9 August 1944

    Quote... Worthington Force fought gallantly, but the battlegroup was destroyed and losses were catastrophic. The BCRs, in their first  battle, lost 47 tanks (44 Shermans, 2 Stuarts, 1 Crusader) and suffered 112 casualties (40 killed, 38 wounded and 34 prisoners of war).

    Over two days, 9 and 10 August, the Algonquins suffered 128 casualties (45 men killed or died of wounds, 38 wounded and 45 prisoners of war). The vast majority of these would undoubtedly have come from the two companies at Point 111.

    In 1945 members of the British Columbia Regiment returned to the rectangular field near Point 111 and found many of their Shermans still sitting where they had been destroyed on 9 August 1944.
