    The regiment took a pounding on the 18th. On the 18th July the regiment lost 37 tanks for the gain of 6 Panthers, 2 Mk IV's, 5 SP's and 3 88's and advanced 5 miles. They also suffered heavily from an air attack on this day as well.

    The diary states that such were their losses they could only field 26 tanks on the 19th May. Anyone know how many they should have deployed to France with?
