Further to this thread, I wonder does anyone have any information about 42 The Essex Yeomanry Provost Battery, RHA?
This unit was part of 104th (Essex Yeomanry) Regt RHA (O/C Lt Col E.J Todhunter) and fought, i believe, throughout the North Africa campaign. I would like to know what guns did they have, was it the 25 pounder mentioned above? Were they at Alamein? And why were they called a "Provost Battery"? Any information would be appreciated, especially about the location of their War Diary
My guess would be it arrived in Palestine with horses and wooden-wheeled 18-pr, motorised and obtained pneumatically tyred 18-pr and 4.5-in during 1940, then in Oct 1940 it got 25-pr and all the paraphenalia of a 25-pr regt such as quads, limbers, etc.
