Dec. 6, 1943: Moro River

Finished second inoculation this a.m. We are on 1/2 hour notice – A and F 2nd Can Bde and 4th Armoured Bde attacking Ortonoa and bridge over Moro River. 14th being relieved by R.T.R. We go under command 1st Can. Div. – our roles is the spear head of the drive from the Ortona Road to the Pescara Rd. It seems to be settling down for a heavy rain, so this advance may become very difficult.
