David do have anyth...

David,

The old SPI board wargame Campaign for North Africa has this unit arriving the first week of May 1941. I will look through my notes I took from Playfair to see if I can find anything else on this.

Best Regards,

David,

I might have something in my notes from Playfair or some other sources, these are handwritten notes and no index, what is the earliest confirmed date/location you show them equipped with 6lb guns?

Thanks

Martins, Glad I could be of help. I was so disapointed when I saw that there were pages and pages of info on the 352nd VGD but only a very few on your fathers division, but it was pure luck that the only info and account was from an individual in your fathers regiment. I will see what else I can com...

I have the book covering the German side. I will look for this, may take me a few days to find it. It did give a very good account of t...
