Many fire plans were prepared but not called for.
Despite the fact that all roads were under observation and there was much movement
this surprisingly drew no shelling from the enemy.
Later a smoke screen was laid down to conceal this movement but it largely succeeded
only in blinding the OPs.
In order to participate in the fire plan for
49 (WR) Division's assault
on ARNHEM the Regiment moved to the area of ELST.
The plan was changed many times and usually with each change there would be a mad rush
to dump more ammunition.
On the 12th April a diversionary fire plan was fired on the west of ARNHEM
and the enemy thinking this was the real thing laid down an intense
of shells, mortars and rockets.
