16:00 Hours 8th June 1944
Urgent message was received by 84th Army Korps sent by 8./G.R.916 stationed at Balleroy. It reported being under heavy attack by elements of 1st US Division. It had repulsed two attacks at company strength but only did so due to heavy artillery support, something the Americans were sure to counter. Reinforcements were urgently being requested. Elements of Panzer Lehr Division were on their way to plug the gap between the Schnelle Brigade 30 and the 352nd Infanterie Division.
