Summary: Armour moves up into the Odon Valley at dawn.
Description: Silhouetted against the sunrise, Sherman and Firefly tanks belonging to the 2nd Fife and Forfar Yeomanry's 'B' Squadron move up from Norrey-en-Bessin towards Fontaine Etoupefour where they will join the rest of 29th Armoured Brigade on Hill 112.
Notes: Summary: all three of 29th Armoured Brigade's tank regiments saw action in the Hill 112 sector, a feature so exposed to German artillery and rocket-mortar fire that it had to be abandoned when Epsom was called off
Remarks: good footage, with some impressive cloud patterns caught by the rising sun
