Notes for HAROLD WILLIAM MUCKLESTON:

Nationality Canadian.

From the Debt of Honour Register:

Harold William Mucklestone Private B/78612 Loyal Edmonton Regiment R.C.I.C. who died on Monday 27th December 1943 age 22 son of Richard V and Effie Mucklestone of Toronto Canada. Buried Moro River Canadian War Cemetery Italy Grave Ref no: IV. G. 12.

On 3 Sep 1943 the allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion co-inciding with an armistice made with the Italians who the re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year. Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but by the end of October, the Allies were facing the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line, which stretched from the river Garigliano in the west to the Sangro in the east. The Allied force that had fought its way up from the Adriatic took the Sangro River positions by 30 November. The 1st Canadian Division went on to cross the Moro river on 6 December against stiff opposition and to take Ortona on the 28th, after a week of bitter street fighting. The 2nd New Zealand division made some advances further inland but thereafter, there was virtually no movement east of the Appenines until after the fall of Rome. The site of the cemetery was chosen by the Canadian Corps in January 1944. It contains the graves of those who died during the fighting at Moro river and Ortona, and during the weeks that preceeded and followed it. In Decembr 1943 alone, the 1st Canadian Battalion suffered over 500 fatal battle casualties. Moro River Canadian War Cemetery contains 1,615 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.
