Description of the action in which Maj. G.E. Neve was wounded: "The 2/14th and the Royal Scots detail who had come into AIS [= Aberdeen Industrial School, the Royal Navy Headquarters] the previous day, together with some dozen naval ratings, held the road itself in the Food Store area. Lt Cdr Selby’s party came under rifle and MG fire from the village almost immediately, and several further casualties were suffered. Lt Cdr Selby pressed forward but with so few effectives available, no hand grenades and only two sub MGs , any assault on the village was out of the question and the party was withdrawn to the Food Stores, though continuing to cover approaches from the village and Brick Hill. No enemy movement took place either in the centre or the on the left.. Intermittent firing continued. 1500 (approx.) Major Neve and Captain Bird passed through AIS and proceeded to the Food Stores with orders to ascertain the enemy’s strength and to clear him out of his positions (!) A review of the situation was made, after which Cdr Millett being required at AIS turned over the combined force to Major Neve. 1530 Major Neve decided the enemy must first be dislodged from his position in the culvert and with this end in view led a volunteer party consisting of Capt Bird, CQMS Benson, six Royal Scots and Sub Lts C F Knox HKRNVR to a trench forward (eastwards) of the food stores, intending to base his attack from this point. About this time for or five strong bursts of mg fire (very high tracer percentage) were put down suddenly and without warning on the low ground between the Stores and the village, but at this time unfortunately thee were no enemy troops in this area. By slightly increasing the range , some damage might have been done in the village itself, but as the fire appeared to have emanated from the Mx sections on Shouson Hill, it was not possible to inform them immediately of this. 1600 Major Neve and party now opened fire upon the small portion of the enemy’s position in the culvert then visible which was returned with great speed and accuracy, not only from there, but from a small hut much nearer the trench, which was not previously known to be occupied. An exchange of grenades took place 3 only available in our case – several of the enemy’s bursting in the trench and severely wounding Major Neve, Capt Bird and several others, who were immediately removed to AIS, together with a number of other casualties which had by now occurred mostly as a result of sniping from the village direction, south of the road 1730 Lt Cdr Selby reconnoitring from Cookhouse Lane, was able from a detached hut to sight some enemy troops in the culvert and succeeded in knocking out three of them; his fire was not returned, neither was any further movement observed from this position. 1800 Major Boxer arrived by car from BHQ with the intention of getting through to Repulse Bay, but realizing the impassability of the road due to the block of vehicles, endeavoured to push forward on foot between the Food Stores and the village. He was at this time accompanied by Lts Price and Forster HKRNVR but their movements were observed and fire was opened from one of the huts, severely wounding Major Boxer. Fire was intensified and grenades thrown, during which time Lts Forster and Price carried Major Boxer to the Food Stores where he was placed in a lorry for AIS by Lt Cdr Binney, who had come down from his position north of the road to investigate the firing. Unfortunately Lt Price was killed in the process."

* On the night of 27th/28th March, 1942, Lieutenant-Colonel Newman was in command of the military force detailed to land on enemy occupied territory and destroy the dock installations of the German controlled naval base at St. Nazaire. This important base was known to be heavily defended and bomber support had to be abandoned owing to bad weather. The operation was therefore bound to be exceedingly hazardous, but Lieutenant-Colonel Newman, although empowered to call off the assault at any stage, was determined to carry to a successful conclusion the important task which had been assigned to him. Coolly and calmly he stood on the bridge of the leading craft, as the small force steamed up the estuary of the River Loire, although the ships had been caught in the enemy searchlights and a murderous crossfire opened from both banks, causing heavy casualties. Although Lieutenant-Colonel Newman need not have landed himself, he was one of the first ashore and, during the next five hours of bitter fighting, he personally entered several houses and shot up the occupants and supervised the operations in the town, utterly regardless of his own safety, and he never wavered in his resolution to carry through the operation upon which so much depended. An enemy gun position on the roof of a U-boat pen had been causing heavy casualties to the landing craft and Lieutenant-Colonel Newman directed the fire of a mortar against this position to such effect that the gun was silenced. Still fully exposed, he then brought machine gun fire to bear on an armed trawler in the harbour, compelling it to withdraw and thus preventing many casualties in the main demolition area. Under the brilliant leadership of this officer the troops fought magnificently and held vastly superior enemy forces at bay, until the demolition parties had successfully completed their work of destruction. By this time, however, most of the landing craft had been sunk or set on fire and evacuation by sea was no longer possible. Although the main objective had been achieved, Lieutenant-Colonel Newman nevertheless was now determined to try and fight his way out into open country and so give all survivors a chance to escape. The only way out of the harbour area lay across a narrow iron bridge covered by enemy machine guns and although severely shaken by a German hand grenade, which had hurst at his feet, Lieutenant-Colonel Newman personally led the charge which stormed the position and under his inspiring leadership the small force fought its way through the streets to a point near the open country, when, all ammunition expended, he and his men were finally overpowered by the enemy. The outstanding gallantry and devotion to duty of this fearless officer, his brilliant leadership and initiative, were largely responsible for the success of this perilous operation which resulted in heavy damage to the important naval base at St. Nazaire.
