    Hi,

    I came across these in the war diary of 6 RTR for Nov 43 today (WO169/9366) and thought they might be of interest:

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for those.

    Can anyone tell me what a Inter-Com Troop is and what type of vehicles it may consist of please?

    Cheers

    Thanks for this. Very good information here! I have 6 RTR info for 2 A9 Cruisers, 1 A10 and one Crusader II only - all of them un-dated.
