I am trying to piece together the general history of 41st, 45th & 47th R/T/R from their arrival in North africa through to the start of the battle of El alamein (23/10/42). I gather that they arrived with Valentines in Early July 1942, but gave these tanks up almost immediately. They then had to wait until late September for replacements, in the form of Shermans, Grants & crusaders. And were in training until the battle started. If anyone can add to this, especially regarding tank delivery dates & types, I would be very grateful. Thanks, David.
