Col Sheffield: Just got in touch with CCB, but it was there Rr CP. Forward is still moving.

Maj Clark: the officer from the 4th Armd Div is going back to his CP but they will send another one up. Col Sheffield: Have him go to CCB's Rr  CP 397155 and a guide will take him from there.

Maj Clark: Believe you should establish liaison with the 4th AD whjo nare at 345245. If CCB keeps on going they will gradually work south into your new Zone, but if they should get held up, have them swing south, because the 4th AD is going to swing north a little to mee them if necessary
