John Proudfoot, commentator with the New Zealand Broadcasting Service Mobile Unit, sends a despatch from the 8th Army Front on the New Zealanders advance from the Adige River to the Piave River, and the occupation of Padua and Venice. The crossing of the Adige River was made with little opposition and to the north of Adige resistance was weak and patchy. A spearhead of mobilised forces penetrated the enemy front passing small enemy pockets that were cleaned out by following troops. Venice was entered early that afternoon and behind this mobilised force lurked the remnants of the German 4 Paratroop Division. Thousands of German prisoners were taken including a German general and his staff. The German Command cannot hold up the allied advance.
