According to their War Diary  57 Field Regiment’s involvement in the Battle of Cassino ended on 18/03/1944 and they were withdrawn south to rest and recalibrate their guns. 226 battery is recorded leaving Benevento on 29/05/1944 moving to join the rest of the regiment  and they all moved to Aquino (north of Cassino)on 30/05/1944. I got no further with the Diary but my father (L/Bdr E Fearon) told me that they then followed the retreating Germans north bypassing Rome.
