Veere Patrol 8th November 1944
On the 8th November 1944 a patrol from 48RM Commando was sent to Veere on the North East of the island of Walcheren travelling in a convoy of 4 amphibious Buffaloes. The second Buffaloe with Lieutenant England in command struck a submerged 11inch shell rigged up to a post as a mine causing many casualties. There is a Memorial to those who died near the Protestant Church of Serooskerke which lists names of the casualties.
