Remembering all involved in both raids on this day, on both sides, and in particular Captain Henry Halahan RN, who was killed by machine-gun fire moments before midnight as Vindictive approached the Mole. :poppy:

I read once that this was the only time when Royal Marines engaged German Marines in a land battle.
