179 Field Regiment, Royal Artillery ( formerly 12th Battalion, Worcestershire Regiment) / 129 Brigade


20 - 26 April, 1945

Following a few short moves, the Regiment crossed the River Weser at Verden and came into action at Langwedel, clearing the way to an assault on Bremen from the East to be synchronised with other Divisions attacking from other directions. There was much excitement on the night of the 26th of April, when the 129 Brigade captured an S.S. General and a band of fanatical Germans in the concrete S.S. Headquarters in the famous Burgher Park.
