I am working with Trux to recreate the Blade Force order of battle (OOB). Blade for was a mobile, combined arms group formed for the Race for Tunisia, 13 November - 12 December, 1942. To develop the OOB for a large unit we will start with each of the Regiment/Battalion sized formations that comprised Blade Force - here we will discuss and develop the OOB for the 17th/21st Lancers Armoured Division. I will make individual posts to this forum describing each troop, squadron, and then the regiment. Please join in the generation of this OOB if it interests you. I will be glad for any additional information, corrections, and thoughts. Using this feedback I will update the appropriate troop, squadron, and/or regiment description. You get to give pearls of wisdom, while I do the heavy lifting It will be very interesting to see how this information grows and how detailed it can become.
