HISTORY OF 7th BATTALION THE ROYAL NORFOLK REGIMENT in World War No. 2 July 1940 – August 1944


The 7th battalion of the Royal Norfolk regiment was twice dissolved: once in 1940 after being surrounded and surrendering in the Fall of France when only 31 men escaped to Britain; and again in 1944 when, after fierce fighting in Normandy it was disbanded to reinforce other depleted units. This is a good unit history with maps, awards (including a VC won by Captain David Jamieson in August 1944) and a Roll of Honour (Officers and W/Os only)
