RFI: 652 Battery, 192 HAA Regt. British Army, WWII

Recommended Posts

Any information regarding this particular unit would be greatly appreciated. We've come across an old family photo with the unit designation scribbled on the back. The soldier's name is Robert Smith from Keighley.

Much obliged!

Here is the war diary, edited by one of the unit members after the war, with a lengthy preface. The unit began its war at Tobruk and finished up in Italy.  Good luck hunting down Smith in the story!

And, yes, there was a 'Left Troop', later presumabky changed to 'B Troop'.
