After Action Report 9: 4th June 1944 - Be my Vallentin

Allied 5th Army enters Rome.

Kesselrings 10th Army is retreating north as the Allies enter the Italian capital city.

Moving ahead of the advance, Lt Edges company advanced to the town of Vallentin where they accepted the surrender of the German garrison and freed a number of POWs. When the division came up they found not only a bag of Wehrmacht troops but 3 trucks loaded with loot stolen by & liberated from the SS.

Sgt Murphy has been recommended for a promotion.

It is rumoured that the 14th Division may be pulled out of Italy to take part in the planned invasion of Western Europe.
