    Have some docs and info on 19 batt in tunisia,italy,germany and holland.
    These are my now deceased father Gunner jack Baileys memoirs and was wondering if any one out there would like sight of them.

    I think that I can safely say that there will be some followers of this forum who will be very interested in reading your father's memoirs. If you have any photographs that you are able to upload, I'm sure that these will also be of interest, (in my case, particularly if they show vehicles or equipment!).

    Welcome to the forum!

    56 Heavy Regiment RA was wonderful Spike Milligan’s unit.

    He supported the X (British) Corps assault over the Garigliano in Jan 44.

    The other battery had originally been raised in 1908 at Saltley, Birmingham, as the South Midland (Warwickshire) Royal Garrison Artillery, which provided the Heavy battery of the 48th (South Midland) Division of the TF. It had served on the Western Front during the First World War.
