As an example... This from the SRY wardiary - an excerpt from the 16th August 1944... "Many machine gun nests troubled the Infantry, and C Squadron methodically destroyed ten of these, but in doing so lost the use of 6 tanks by enemy Infantry and mines. Bazookas accounted for 2 of them. Three of the tanks will be fit again in 1/2 days. It is interesting to note that one tp which advanced with the leading Infantry passed over the crest of the hill almost 2 miles South of the river unmolested. Some time later a second tp was sent forward and not one of the tanks reached the leading Troop. This second troop was not accompanied by Infantry and enemy Infantry opened up with Bazookas. One tank was brewed up and the entire crew killed by mortars and small arms when baling out. Another tank was penetrated 4-5 times but was recovered next day. A third tank struck a mine. The Sqn had had a very (it seems that there is a page missing?) These tps were unavoidably scattered and this incident illustrated the dangers of this type of country to tanks. As a result of this incident it was necessary for the leading Tp which had already done Yeoman work throughout the day, to continue in further exploitation South. This did not finish until dusk and then owing to the “black” night had to lead his tp back on foot through the country still infested with Germans. The enemy had a 75mm and a 105mm Special Anti Tank Guns at points on the road but both were destroyed before they hit our tanks." I've looked at the original docs and it would make this day's diary entry - if there were actually another page now missing for the 16th - rather unusually long - however there is a definite break off in the text from: "The Sqn had had a very..." to "These tps were unavoidably scattered and this incident illustrated the dangers..." bit. So just wondering perhaps if many others with war diaries have often noticed pages in war diaries just missing these days and maybe too just how easy it actually is for pages to just go astray? Other examples of other known "missing pages" in other war diaries would be interesting to note here too perhaps? Or is there an existing thread for this? Possible explanations, I suppose the missing page above perhaps dealt with something someone wanted to expunge, use elsewhere, or just couldn't resist swiping one day?
