Many years ago, while I was stationed up in Cleveland Ohio I met an old soldier (who ran a hobby shop/book store, which was why I was in there) who was a WWII veteran. He claimed to have been present at one of the El Alamein battles. I am guessing this was 2nd Alamein, as he spoke of the weapons they had, which included bazookas. His was only a small detachment, more of an observers force than anything else. Does anyone have any other info about this?
