The northern wing of Guards Armoured Division expected a clear run to Brussels. Crossing the Somme battlefields of the First World War, the Grenadiers set their sights on Waterloo, where they had gained their title in 1815. Even after two tanks were knocked out in front of Pont-À-Marcq, it was hoped that resistance would evaporate; but here the defenders proved resolute. While the rest of the brigade took another route, the Grenadiers prepared to attack.
