Does anyone know if the equipment of 55 (Suffolk Yeomanry) Anti-Tank Regiment was unusual in the period from D-Day until November 1944? My understanding is that the standard WE of an infantry divisional A/T Regt consisted of two troops of 6-pounders and one of 17-pounders per battery. The WE of a regiment when they received Archers gave them one troop of 6-pounders, one of 17-pounders, and one of Archers, so typically (so far as I can tell) one troop of 6-pounders would turn in their guns and get Archers instead. However, when 55 A/T Reg't received their first Archers in November, and were told that spares might be short, 12 17 pounders and their quads were kept at 1 Corps Vehicle Park in case the SPs turned out to be unserviceable due to a lack of parts. I can't understand how they could have turned in 17-pounders unless they had two troops of 17s per battery. edited P.S. going over the war diary and the little history of the regiment for the period up until November, this is how I think the batteries were structured: 217: A, B, C 218: D, E, F(17) 219: G(6), H(17), I 220: K, L, M(17) F troop: reference to losing 17-pounder in WD for Oct 7-8 G troop: reference to 6-pounders in history at Westwezel H troop: reference to 17-pounders in history near Breda and in WD for 30 June M troop: reference to 17-pounder in WD for 17 June when the troop was tragically overrun Did 'C' troop have 6-pounders or 17-pounders at Rauray? Has anyone read the book about that battle? Then in November... troops A, D, I, and K received Archers, according to the history, but I really can't square that with the war diary, which says that on 6 Nov "12 17-prs and 12 quads withdrawn from btys. 17-pdr tps est Oelegham for trg" ... given that the troops with 17-pounders seem to have been C (?), F, H, and M.
