    I'm wondering if maybe someone has a copy of Bryan Perrett's The Hawks: A short history of 14th/20th King's Hussars?

    Specifically what I am interested in knowing is if there is any mention of Archers in the period starting November 1952 when they were posted to Libya. I think, but am not sure, that they took over the equipment used by 4/7 Dragoon Guards which consisted of a mixture of Comets and Archers (plus scout cars).

    From the 4/7 Dragoon Guards' history: "The [Recce] Troop returned to Sabratha in early October 1952, to find the Regiment in the throes of packing and handing over to the Advance Party of the 14th/20th King’s Hussars, with whom they were exchanging postings."

    (Whoops, now I have found that the reference library does have a copy - so if anyone has a copy near to hand, I'd be interested, but don't go hunting very far for it :))

    Well, there was nothing much in Perrett - in fact some of it seemed possibly incorrect. :-/
