February was a quiet month for all three battalions of the Irish Brigade.
Both the Faughs and the Skins had been withdrawn from their winter front line positions near San Clemente at the end of January with the Irish Rifles being eventually relieved on 4th February. After a few days at rest north of Florence, the whole brigade travelled to Forli where, by the end of the month, they had started their preparations for future offensive operations, which were being planned for the drier spring time period.
4th February: 2 LIR are withdrawn from the front line to join the rest of the brigade.
10th/11th February: All three battalions of the brigade move to Forli.
