|KK- 192 Northern France City in a Box - Lingevres
On 14th June1944 whilst British 7th Armoured Division was fighting for the "Island Position", 50th Infantry division launched a divisional attack with two brigades supported by RAF fighter ground attack and the full divisional artillery. During this assault the 151st (Durham) Infantry Brigade, compromising6th, 8th, and 9th Durham Light Infantry , supported by tanks of 4th & 7th Dragoon Guards, began the assault by launching the 9th DLI to capture the village of Lingevres, some 3km west of Tilly-sur-Seulles. Meanwhile 6th Durham Light Infantry was to attack the hamlet of les Verrieres which lay to the North-east of Lingevres. If the attack were successful, the 6th DLI would then push on towards Hottot-les-Bagues. Both attacks pitted the Geordies against the extremely skilled Panzergrenadiers of Panzer Lehr Division, who could be expected to make the fullest use of the very difficult bocage country, where surprise was very easy to achieve and death lurked around every corner.
