The 1st, 5th and 7th Battalions were all landed in Normandy on or shortly after D Day, 6 June 1944. The 7th battalion with the rest of the 51st Division landed on the Italian mainland six weeks earlier but were moved to Britain to prepare for the D-Day operations in Normandy. The 7th Battalion suffered many casualties in the Bois de Bavent, and after the fall of Caen on 11th July was engaged in the push north to close the Falaise Gap. St Valéry, Le Havre, Dunkirk, the sites of previous defeats in 1940, were all passed through with little German resistance. In February 1945 the battalion was part of the attack through the Reichswald, leading to continuous action under German artillery attack. It crossed the Rhine on 22nd March 1945 under severe shelling, the last major engagement before VE-Day.
