Welcome to the GMIC! And Happy New Year. We're a friendly lot and seem to count among our number at least one expert on d**n near any topic you'd care to name. At least, to the best of my recollection I can't recall many occasions when the whole club has come up dry and some members have a fantastic depth and breadth of knowledge in their specialty areas.

Am I right in assuming that '19 Port Workshop [Company?] were a Royal Engineers or Ordnance Corps unit? I'm also guessing from your reference to war diaries that your interest is First War. At least here in Canada, war diaries for 1914-18 are available but nothing for WWII due to confidentiality rules, and I think the same applies in the UK. |The more detail you can give us on exactly what you're looking for, the more likely it is that someone here can help.

Again, welcome!

19 port workshop detachment was royal electrical mechanical engineers, they landed in North Africa during ww2

As to details I'm looking for anything I can find, I've already posted on countless websites for information, I already have the war dairies but looking to find out as much as I can from other sources :)
