    Can anyone please supply me with the Regt Histories of the 6 Bn Royal Scots Fusiliers, 8 Bn Royal Scots and 6 Bn KOSB for Veritable.

    I'm especially interested in the operations on the high ground overlooking Cleve (aka Materborn ridge).

    Many thanks Idler for your links, my father was in the RSF 6th Btn from 1943 until he joined 2SAS in 1944 so it was good to read about this, as we hadn't yet found anything on his activities with them but plenty on his time with the SAS. Your link to the book covered the period after he left the RSF, do you know if there are any further details anywhere for the time period from 1943-44?
