April 7th, Tuesday

Situation the same. Another had penetration in front of Il Corps. Subsector C just falling back in center. Two of our division are demoralized. Many captured. Hospital No. 1 has been hit again by heavy bombers. 50-60 have
been killed and many wounded. General Parker has moved his headquarters back to GHQ. Il Corps, along its entire front, is beginning to disintegrate. There has been no pressure in front of I Corps. However. General Jones is having to retire his righl flank in order to maintain limiting points with the II Corps left. It is becoming increasingly difficult to reorganize troops to offer resistance. Men are abandoning arms and running out of ranks.
