Re: A15 Cruusader MkI

OK Tom. I'm not sure why I seem to have upset you with my posts, and replies to yours. I have tried to keep things civil, but unless I am mistaken (and I could be) there seems to be an "edge" to your replies to me. I mean no offence, and just want to learn. it's not like I'm trying to make a profit ...

Re: A15 Cruusader MkI

No, it was meant to be tongue in cheek.

But believe me when I say I have spent many hours looking.

Do you have any clues you would like to share? Because I'm not in the league that can Spend £25 on a book, much less £250!

Hi Tom. Oh dear! Most of that information came from another forum. I had no reason to doubt its veracity at the time.

Re: A15 Cruusader MkI

OK. It looks like I should have checked my notes before making that first post! Here's what I have actually got.... Please feel free to correct where there are errors. Remember it is A15 MkI C/S I'm trying to pinpoint. 67x A15MkI arrive with "Tiger" convoy, April 30th/May 1st 1941. How many, if any ...

Re: 90th Leichte Division

How about the HQ of Afrika-Division z.b.V. When did that arrive, and did it change at all when the Division became 90th Light Armoured?

Thanks,
David.

Heeres Fliegerabwehr MG Bataillon 613

Hi.

Did the Heeres Fliegerabwehr MG Bataillon 613 ever serve in North Africa?
And if so when?

Thanks in advance,

Re: 15. Panzer Division in Africa

Ten years have passed since last we discussed this.

Any update on those port capacity figures for Tobruk & Benghazi?
