    Here is a brief summary of the service of 67th Medium Regiment, RA:

    67th Medium Regiment, R.A. (T.A.)
    HQ, 232nd (Suffolk) Bty: Ipswich
    231st (Suffolk) Bty: Sudbury

    67th Medium Regiment served under command of IV Corps Artillery in the autumn of 1940. It was sent to North Africa in October 1941 as part of the Crusader convoys. It served under 8th Army in the campaigns in the Western Desert from November 1941 until June 1942. It supported the South African attack on Bardia in December 1941. The regiment added (Suffolk) to its name on 17 February 1942. It was captured at Tobruk on 20 June 1942. Due to casualities the regiment was reduced to a cadre on 7 September 1942.
    The regiment was reformed at Hunstanton, Norfolk on 7 February 1943 from 167th Field Regiment. It joined 3rd Army Group RA on its formation on 11 February 1943 at 49 Trant Road, Tunbridge Wells. It served in Northwest Europe with this formation from June 1944 until the end of the war.

    Hi & Welcome
    As dryan has said they were under command of 3AGRA (Army Group Royal Artillery) in N W Europe with the 13th, 59th & 72nd Medium Regts. I have all the diaries of 3AGRA, so if you want to know what when & where of the 67th after June 44 let me know.

    Hello Thelma,
    I have just posted my father's personal diary on the forum. He was with 231 Bty. in NW Europe.
