M5 Halftrack in British use

Post by yantaylor » 23 May 2020 19:25

High everyone.

The British made use of the M5 HT, thus they issued them to Motorized battalions, regiments or brigades, but I cant find which battalions, regiments or brigades actually had the M5. I found on line that the British still called them motor battalions no matter what they travelled in for example 8 ctw truck or halftrack.

So which units used the halftracks, as I dont think that the Americans sold us enough to equip every motor battalion.

Thanks
Ian
