Battleaxe OOB and TOE needed please help!

Post by BattleAxeFan » 04 Apr 2019 15:47

Hi I'm working on a massive game covering the battleaxe campaign. The ability to find OOB details has stumped me so far. Does anyone have a line on OOB for German, Italian and UK forces involved in the battle including detailed organization down to the company level along with starting locations for the battle?

Thanks for any help!

3rd Armoured Brigade
8 May. Quiet during the day. At 2040 hours a Troop of ‘C’ Sqn., 1 R. Tanks went outside the wire at Post R33 taking an R.E. Officer with them to destroy the three A.A. guns left behind by the Germans on 14.4.41 about ½ mile out from the wire. The guns were destroyed and the Troop returned without incident.

Under cover of a sandstorm the I/FIak-Regiment 18 successfully recovered three 8-8 cm Flak and a schwere Zugmaschine from directly in front of enemy positions. These had been abandoned during the attack on Tobruk on 14 April.
