I have now received my digitised copy of War Diaries from the National Archives covering 57th Field Regt RA from 1942 July to December. Although the “full set” is listed as available from 1939 – 1945 it is quite expensive to have them copied – so I thought I would just pick one offering to see what they reveal.
Outstanding! – day by day diary of the Regt including comments from the CO of the Regt. The 1942 Diary I got detailed action during Alamein and beyond. I am now going to order the remaining Diaries. As I live in Australia and can’t visit the Archives ( where you can view free of charge providing you order in advance) the cost is quite significant , but in my view worth it.
