78 Inf Div were the force that drove north once 8 Ind Div and 2 NZ Div had forced the Senio and the the Santerno 0n 9-11 Apr 45 – two rivers that came down from the northern Apennines and who both had enormous flood banks.  Tackling these flood banks was quite an achievement.  78 Inf Div were directed due north to pass through the Argenta Gap and on to Ferrara.  2 AGRA would have allocated 73 Med Regt RA to beef up the three smaller calibre Field Regts  of 78 Inf Div.
