before 0900 hrs squadron B of the 4th County of London Yeomanry arrived, as a point element, at Villers-Bocage with a section of
the motorized infantry 1st Rifle Brigade (called Green Jackets) and took up a position in the village. Squadron A continued to a
position on the western slope of hill 213. The Germans decided to halt the encirclement. At 0915 hrs, a detachment of tanks
from Schwere SS-Panzer-Abeitling 101 controlled by SS-Obersturmfuhrer Michael Wittman and supported by
Panzergrenadiers, attacked the British at Villers-Bocage.
