Description

The 1st Canadian Infantry Division, having captured Campobosso in late October, began withdrawing in late November, bound for the Adriatic coast, where they were to replace a British division that had been badly mauled in the crossing of the lower Sangro River. The Canadians were assigned the far right flank of the British Eighth Army, on the coast, and given the task of driving northwards to capture the small port town of Ortona. Before they could do that, however, they would have to cross the heavily defended Moro River, about three-kilometers South of Ortona. The Canadians' plan called for the crossing the river and the securing of a bridgehead at three points; on the right along the coast, the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment was to capture San Donato; in the center, the Seaforth Highlanders were to capture San Leonardo, and on the left flank, the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry was to capture Villa Rogatti.
