In a recent thread regarding a friendly fire incident (HMS Orion etc) there was some discussion about whether such things were investigated and how deeply. The Lothian and Borders Yeomanry were involved in a fairly serious one in Feb '45 during a night attack on the German village of Kirschtroisdorf (just south of Monchengladbach), which seems to have been looked at quite closely. No 2 Troop, A Squadron, commanded by Lt P S Newman MC, were badly shoot up by tanks of the US 743d Tank Battalion and lost seven men killed and five wounded. Thought the board might be interested in the reports of the investigating officer - I've no idea whether these commonly appear in War Diaries. The Lothian's WD begins the story; Word just received that A Sqn were engaged in an attack last night and 2Tp (Lt P S Newman MC), as the result of a tragic accident, were badly shot up by the Americans. Seven men, including Sgt McArthur, were killed and five wounded. contd..
