  • Three Brazilian battalions attacked Monte Castello 61 kilometers southwest of Bologna, Italy at 0700 hours. The poor weather precluded support from the air and by the attached three platoons of US tanks. The attack was repulsed by the afternoon. ww2dbase [Battle of Monte Castello | Monte Castello, Emilia-Romagna | CPC]

  • Whilst defending a position at Faenza, Italy, Lieutenant (temporary Captain) John Henry Cound Brunt, age 22, of the British Army Sherwood Foresters (attached Lincolnshire Regiment) used anti-tank PIATs, Bren guns, and a 2-inch mortar to drive back a German 90th Panzergrenadier Division counterattack. Later he turned another attack, blazing away with a Bren from the top of a Sherman tank. His conduct earned him the Victoria Cross but he did not live to know it. Supposedly safe by this time, he was killed on the following day by shellfire. ww2dbase [PIAT | Faenza, Emilia-Romagna | AC, CPC]
