    Hi,

    Does anyone have a copy of the 2 HCR war diary for 2 August 1944 that they would be willing to share?

    Regards

    Does anyone perhaps also have the war diary entries of the 2nd Household cavalry regiment of April 1st and 2nd 1945?

    Hi,

    I particularly like the style of the 2nd Household Cavalry Regiment's regimental history, which is similar to the Irish Guards history in that it includes its fair share of grim narrative leavened with the occasional shaft of humour such as this:

    I, as well, suspect that many officers had nicknames given them by their subordinates that were unsuitable for inclusion in the regimental history. :D

    Regards
