    I have just stumbled across this site again while googling.

    http://www.wartimememories.co.uk/map.html

    I did a quick search on this forum and although it has been mentioned and linked to it didn't have a thread of its own. There is a vast amount of information on there. The first page I read had a story, and a picture, of a stone barn which was this chaps billet. It was in my home town of Moreton-in Marsh. It looked vaguely familiar, I wonder it it's still standing?
    Ah, Serendipity.

    Sadly I gave up with this site a while ago. They were being targeted by hackers which brought the site down a few times. Hope they've sorted it out now as I thought it was very interesting.

    I had a feeling that it had been missing for a while. Hopefully all is OK now.

    Is anybody here a member of this.

    They have a single mysteriously named file/document in their 'library' tagged as associated with 4th Essex and dated 29/7/42:

    'Reliefs'

    4th Battalion, Essex Regiment in the Second World War 1939-1945 - The Wartime Memories Project -

    Naturally, I'm intrigued, but £25.00 seems like a steep price to pay. Assuming it is 1/4th Essex (I can't see how 2/4th Essex in the U.K. could be relieved) the battalion was indeed relieved from their positions on the Alamein Line on this date at 1600 by the 4/6th Rajputana Rifles.
