Lads, while researching Sened Station, I stumbled upon the 3 US Ranger battalions that were disbanded after Cisterna, but then remembered the 3rd Indian Motor Brigade, which after Mechili AND Gazala, still found its way to Italy, reformed for a third time. All took similar beatings, but one was kept on the line and the others not. Why did things like this happen during the war? Was it because different armies had different policies? Maybe different in regard to unit level? Which were the "requirements" for disbanding a unit during WW2?
