I cleaned up the map a bit and was surprised by the number of units identified. The square flags marked 16, 19 and 20 represent the HQ's for the 16º raggruppamento artiglieria and the 19º and 20º reggimenti fanteria, and the numbered triangular pennants depict the battalions of the infantry regiments. There are lettered strongpoints A through K and X and Y (closest to the Tobruk perimeter) and numbered strongpoints 1 through 21. Also note S, T and U positions on the left side of the map.
The groups of artillery symbols are easy to identify-the XLIV/16 represents the XLIV (44º) gruppo which had three batteria with 105/28 guns, the XXI/5 is the XXI (21º) gruppo of the 5º raggruppamento artiglieria which had three batteria of 149/35 guns, and the II(?)/1 is the II (2º) gruppo of the 1º reggimento artiglieria celere (articelere) with two batteria of 75/27 guns.
Thanks again for posting the document.
Was there a similar map for the sector of D. mot. Trento?

We could use the naval battle rule: from A to L the columns and from 1 to 12 the lines... or, better, just only the columns (A-L) from top to low...
I identified the strongpoints on the right side: in the lower right is S10 an the last top right is S45; the dotted central line is the road from Tobruk to Derna (running between S19 and S21).

Anyone know which battalion was the 100mm battalion they were reinforced with?
