The patrol fought off the German attackers, but a new attack came after day-break. Page divided his men into two groups and ordered them to withdraw to the battalion lines, but Page's own group was spotted by German armoured cars and attacked. Only one of them escaped. Three days later, however, French Spahis (local troops) brought Page in. He had been wounded but hidden by a French farmer. Page was recommended for a Military Cross for his leadership and valour in a battle in which it is estimated about two dozen enemy soldiers were killed or wounded. Page died later of his wounds. He was recommended for the MC. Page  was the son of Charles and Hilda May of Tottenham.

Educated at Ampleforth and Jesus College Cambridge, Major Arthur (Kevin) O’Connor was appointed second-in-command of the London Irish Rifles in March 1943 following the battalion’s battles in the Bou Arada area. He temporarily took over command of the battalion in August 1943 due to the sickness of its commanding officer Rogers. He was killed at 1000 on 28th Oct by shells during the battle for the River Trigno as he had brought up supplies to the Irish Brigade bridgehead north of the river. The official history of the London Irish Rifles described him thus: “Fearless, a charming and delightful personality, he was held in high esteem by everyone. The great work he did for the battalion he loved so much will live after him. The cross on his soldier’s grave beside the banks of the Trigno bears the simple epitaph: "A Gallant Gentleman.” O’Connor was the son of Bernard and Teresa O’Connor.

Rank: Lieut Colonel      Unit: London Irish Rifles, attached from Kings (Liverpool) Regiment    Service number: 111

Commander of the 2nd Battalion. Lt-Col Goff was killed by shells while holding an operations group on the afternoon of 15 May in preparation for the attack on Sinagoga. The attack was postponed until 9am the next day. In Fling Our Banner to the Wind (1978), John Coldwell-Horsfall provided a vivid description of Goff's character, based on his perspective in March 1944 soon after he was appointed second-in-command of the 2nd battalion: "Ion was a lot older than the rest of us, and was a pre-war regular several years beyond Pat's (Brigadier Scott's) vintage. Aged forty-two, he had, I think, the wretched assignment of being on the staff in Malta until recently, and in consequence had missed the experience so far of more active operations. He was a very charming man and no one could have given a kinder welcome than he did to me that evening (16 March 1944). In his person, he possessed the ideal temperament for coping with our riflemen."

Educated at Ampleforth and Jesus College Cambridge, Major Arthur (Kevin) O’Connor was appointed second-in-command of the London Irish Rifles in March 1943 following the battalion’s battles in the Bou Arada area. He temporarily took over command of the battalion in August 1943 due to the sickness of its commanding officer Rogers. He was killed at 1000 on 28th Oct by shells during the battle for the River Trigno as he had brought up supplies to the Irish Brigade bridgehead north of the river. The official history of the London Irish Rifles described him thus: “Fearless, a charming and delightful personality, he was held in high esteem by everyone. The great work he did for the battalion he loved so much will live after him. The cross on his soldier’s grave beside the banks of the Trigno bears the simple epitaph: "A Gallant Gentleman.” O’Connor was the son of Bernard and Teresa O’Connor.

Rank: Lieut Colonel      Unit: London Irish Rifles, attached from Kings (Liverpool) Regiment    Service number: 111

Commander of the 2nd Battalion. Lt-Col Goff was killed by shells while holding an operations group on the afternoon of 15 May in preparation for the attack on Sinagoga. The attack was postponed until 9am the next day. In Fling Our Banner to the Wind (1978), John Coldwell-Horsfall provided a vivid description of Goff's character, based on his perspective in March 1944 soon after he was appointed second-in-command of the 2nd battalion: "Ion was a lot older than the rest of us, and was a pre-war regular several years beyond Pat's (Brigadier Scott's) vintage. Aged forty-two, he had, I think, the wretched assignment of being on the staff in Malta until recently, and in consequence had missed the experience so far of more active operations. He was a very charming man and no one could have given a kinder welcome than he did to me that evening (16 March 1944). In his person, he possessed the ideal temperament for coping with our riflemen."
