Ah, that clarifies things. Thanks as always Michael. Cheers!Michael Kenny wrote: ↑03 May 2021 08:22The original document is a count of all losses June 6th-11th. B Squadron in the only bit where there is no breakdown by date of the losses. It is entirely possible some of the B Squadron losses are from other dates.

I checked. Reynolds got it wrong.
Great stuff as always. I was impressed with the research that Michael Reynolds put into his first book about the Battle of the Bulge but got the impression his later books were churned out without as much thought/analysis/concern for accuracy.

Interesting there are more losses from mines and indirect fire than antitank weapons. That seems to have been a general 'case' in the Second World War, although I may well be mistaken.
