    Just recieved war diary for 4th field reg. RA., courtesy of a member. heres an extract I found slightly amusing. August 1942:

    "Early in the morning about 20 rounds gunfire landed in the vicinity of 7 battery. One man was slightly wounded. A regimental concentration was fired in reply. 7 battery was not fired on again" :)

    A little humour never goes amiss :).

    It sounds like the reply was a real good stonking.

    And another little gem:

    8/7/1942 - everyone digging themselves in.

    11/7/1942 - Bombing raid in the afternoon, no damage. Digging continued with more interest. :D
