    Has anyone any information on the above please. What little I have is rather confusing. Routledge has 52 Battery in Iceland in March 1941 and 85 LAA with 77 Battery arriving sometime during July or later. Presumably 55 Bty then joined them. However all my references say that 85 LAA wasn't formed until September 1941 by which time the Americans were taking over and British troops were being withdrawn from Iceland. I can find no other mention of the Regiment either in my references or on line. Can anyone clarify the situation?
