The technique was to float a party quietly towards the beach in a rubber dinghy attached by rope to an 18ft (5m) dory 100 yards (90m) offshore, the whole team being transported to the scene by a motor torpedo boat. On each occasion the enemy opened up with flares, searchlights, and small-arms fire, forcing the party to withdraw before learning anything useful. 79th Armoured Division's assault teams would land on a beach of unknown composition, with calamitous results. 30 At Vlissingen, close reconnaissance of a seafront bristling with enemy machine-gun posts was clearly impossible.
Everyone who could be spared spent the night carrying up food and ammunition, including the colonel. Casualties had been heavy. By the end of D+l, when it saw little fighting, the Commando's total losses amounted to 12 killed, 57 wounded, and 21 missing, 26 per cent in all. Most of the missing were found later on back in Ostend, evacuated by their stricken LCTs, but officer casualties were disproportionately high: six killed and three wounded. Even before 48 (RM) Commando's attack, brigade was sufficiently satisfied by progress south of the gap to resume the advance on Domburg.
Destined for Vlissingen, 4 Commando studied aerial photographs, climbed sea walls, and practised street fighting in the ruins of Ostend. Neither time nor landing craft were available for a full-scale rehearsal, but troop- and Commando-level exercises were carried out, including liaison with tanks. Live firing was sufficiently realistic for four marines to be killed by their own PIAT, a type of spring-launched anti-tank weapon. The Lowlanders, however, had no time for practice. They arrived in Belgium in late October, and went straight into action.
