The photos are to large to post I'm doing this on my phone so I'm limited I will try with the rest on the computer when I get time thanks.
Just an annual reminder of the disturbances that took place in Cairo in early August 1944.. I know that Ron Goldstein noted in his diary that the date of the affray was 9th August 1944.
The only addition to the previous conversations on the subject is this small section that I had recently noted in the 'Quis Separabit' journal dated May 1945.
Faugh a Ballagh !
I noticed this thread while researching my father who was in the 159th Field Ambulance during Operation Torch (I have the regimental diary of that period) However in Ken Ford's book of the 78th Division it lists the RAMC as you have above in the Order of Battle. Can you tell me what the source of your OOB is?
I wonder if this is a typographical error and they meant the 159th rather than 152nd? I haven't confirmed where the 152nd were in 1943 but they were attached for much of the war to the 51st Highland Division which makes me think this may be an error? Any help gratefully accepted
Good eaving all
Does anyone know if the 78th div had its own newspaper?
