During Operation Totalize, Worthington Force with B, C and HQ companies of the Algonquin Regiment supporting 52 tanks from the British Columbia Regiment, bumped into the rear of Halfpenny Force fighting the SS in Bretteville-le-Rabet, went round them and got lost. When dawn broke on 9 August, Worthington Force was 4.5 mi (7.2 km) to the east of Hill 195 at Hill 140, halfway between Estrees-la-Campagne and Mazieres. They held their ground against German armoured counter-attacks during 9 August but suffered many casualties, including most of their tanks. By 17.00 hours what remained of Worthington Force had either been captured or forced to withdraw. Because the column was so far from its intended objective, other units sent to relieve it could not find it.
Attacker: German (SS) (Elements of KG Krauss and KG Waldmuller, 12.SS-Panzer Division "Hitlerjugend")
Defender: Canadian (Elements of Worthington Force (The British Columbia Regiment))
