I have posted a couple of threads recently in respect of a visit last week to Tunisia to film some part of the route that my father, Edmund, took during his journey from Algiers to Tunis in late 1942/early 1943. My father's unit, 2nd Bn London Irish Rifles (2 LIR), as part of 38 (Irish) Brigade, landed in North Africa on 22nd November 1942 during the second wave of 6th Armoured Division's push towards Tunis..They fought hard in the Bou Arada/Goubellat sector during Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar before transferring to 78th Division and entering the mountains north of Medjez-el-Bab where the division's fighting advance in April 1943 opened the road to Tunis. After the 1st Army's final breakthrough west of Tunis in late April/early May, 2 LIR would be the first marching troops to enter the city on 8th May 1943. It was an excellent few days in good weather and we received a very hospitable welcome and I am sharing "a few" photos below. As discovered during my previous visit to the country in March 2012, northern Tunisia can be wonderfully green and fertile at this time of the year although it seems that the rainfall this year has been below average so the reservoir levels were well down and crop heights much lower. The first two days of the trip was spent on the hills astride of the Bou Arada-Goubellat Roman road where there was some bitterly fought battles for the Irish Brigade on Two Tree Hill, Grandstand Hill, Points 286/279 and Stuka Ridge/Farm during January and February 1943. 1) View from Grandstand Hill west toward Jebel Rihane. 2) View from Grandstand east towards Two Tree Hill (without the two trees). 3) Stuka Ridge looking north towards Goubellat. 4) Filming north from Goubellat direction towards Medjez-el-Bab 5) Memorial wall at Medjez CWGC cemetery. 6) Bridge at Beja.
