    Hi, Is anyone aware of any books which cover this battle during March 23-24, 1943 involving 111 Field Regiment RA, part of 8th Army, 2nd Armoured Div, NZ Corp.

    In particular, I am hoping to find any mention of a friend's relative who earned the MM during the battle for El-Hamma following Mareth. I have the citation for his brave deed but would like to read more about how the battle progressed and if names are mentioned.

    I have read various reports about the 8th Army and snippets from the Internet. Even the Pathe News clips describe the battles around that time in Tunisia.

    I do not have a copy of the War Diary for 111 Field Regiment RA. Can anyone help out? Would there be any mention of acts of bravery?

    Any pointers would be appreciated.

    Alan, this is the reference for their war diary at the National Archives for 1943:

    WO 169/9512, 111 Fd. Regt. 1943 Jan.- Dec.

    Drop me a PM (or order through Arcre - Document Copy Service ) if you're interested in me copying it for you.
