Gents and ladies, Please find a link here to a battlefield guide describing the 38 (Irish) Brigade's actions north of Bou Arada during January and February 1943. http://www.irishbrigade.co.uk/media/A%20practical%20guide%20to%20the%20Irish%20Brigade%20battlefields%20in%20the%20Bou%20Arada%20area%20(2).pdf [still one or two gremlins to be ironed out shortly]. Myself and, especially, my brother Edmund have worked on this guide since we visited Tunisia in April - this will be the first of a series of such detailed guides that will be produced for various Tunisian, Sicilian and Italian battlefield areas over the coming months. The guide is, of course, primarily focused on the Irish Brigade's role, within 6th Armourerd Divison, during this part of the campaign including reference to the vital support given by the brigade's armoured, artillery, pioneer, and comms regiments. The detailed maps and narratives, though, may hold a wider resonance within the WWII Talk community - of course this same area of ground became important again during April 1943 for another group of most brave men. Our thanks are due to our friends in Tunisia, Ireland and England who helped us with the research. Especial mention should also be made of the surviving veterans of this sometimes forgotten campaign - special greetings go out to my father's comrades at the Battles of Bou Arada : Sgt Charles Ward of G Coy, and Rifleman Robert Randall of F Coy, both from 2 London Irish Rifles, and both still going strong at the age of 93 and 92 respectively. And of course, we remember the thousands of men who did not get the chance to return to their families and remain at peace in the many war cemeteries of Tunisia and Algeria. Quis Separabit.
