Tom describes Irish efforts to control access to Hill 880, which he describes as a 'commanding piece of high ground', by putting two 84 (anti-tank weapon) crews on approaching roads. Later that evening the Battalion Reserve began to arrive and he refers to his relief at their appearance. He expresses his thought at the time that he would go down in the annals as 'the guy who lost the village.'
