After the hard won battle at Sheffield the allied forces slowly moved further north along the A1. Six days later they arrived at Elsecar, just outside Barnsley, where the german Army was had control of the station. After some initial skirmishes the 6th Airbourne Division made an all out assault on the railway and eventually managed to overcome all resistance.
The US Army decided to sit out this encounter, playing cards was a higher priority.
