57 Fd Regt RA were in neither 46 nor 56 Inf Divs at Salerno so they had to have been part of an AGRA. I have them in Italy on a record taken on 30 Sep 43 so it is very likely that they did land on 9 Sep 43 as part of the Salerno operation. I also have them still in Italy on 10 Apr 44 and 13 May 45.
I also have them in the US Fifth Army record of units under command and that confirms that they were at both Salerno and Anzio.
They fired 25 pounders.
