Hello Paul,

Is the title of this thread correct? The first few pages in message #1 look like 48th Recce, not 50th Recce!

Best,

Steve.

Thanks Paul - That's great. I look forward to reading these...

Will there be any other 50 Recce WD's being posted; I don't know how many months they are available for given that 50 Recce were overrun in the Cauldren/Kensington battles in June 1942 and thereafter ceased to exist!

Best,

Steve.

CAB 106

This is not a War Diary but an eyewitness account of 50 Recce between 27th March and 6 June 1942 in Cyrenaica.

 

Many thanks to Drew for finding this file.

Can you guys actually read this stuff?

I can't, even after clicking on the individual pages. Is there no zoom function?
Or am I being dumb?
