189 Bde RND were holding a ridge south of Le Barque - Drake on the left, Hood in the centre and Hawke on the right. The Divisional History states: "This brigade, well outside the Divisional Boundary and without support in the first instance on either flank, remained unsupported till nightfall on 25th, when the 21st Division came forward." 21 Div eventually relieved them on the night of 27 Aug.
