Hello to all
, noeneors, Mende was included here. Now something more.............
Story of an Army Corps from the German border to the French-Belgian border. May 1940.
On May 11, 1940 continued the progress towards Bomal by the Ourthe without contact with the enemy and crossing several destroyed bridges. In that area the stream, of 1-meter in depth, was crossed by a ford. On the evening of May 10, 1940 the IR 7 reached Weiwertz and on May 11, 1940 went toward Malmedy.
On May 12, 1940 the regiment (IR 84) continued its approach to the Meuse, but this time holding some fighting with the Belgian rearguard occupying positions in the heights and woods. At dusk on that very day the 7 IR reached Bois et Borsu.
On May 13, 1940, again was a beautiful day, the IR 84 reached the ground near the river Meuse, the regiment marched the last 5 kilometers, which separated it from the water course and reached the river banks by Yvoir. To our left an armored division (5 Pz) already was fighting against the French units which were deployed across the River.
