Reply To: 42nd Light Anti Aircraft Regiment Royal Artillery


Hello Trevor

A year after your original post I know, but I can tell you where the 42LAA was on 12/06/1944. Reading the War Diaries of my Grandfather’s regiment and on this date the Commanding Officer of the 42LAA was having dinner with the the Commander Royal Artillery for the 2nd Armoured Brigade, 1st British Armoured Division, the CO of the 60th Anti Tank Regiment as well as the the CO of the 11th (HAC) RHA, my Grandfather’s regiment. On that day the 11th was camped at Altamura, the Divisional RA camp, at 043583 on sheet 188, Italy 1/100000.
