10th Hussars

Postby David W » 05 Mar 2009 02:15

During the Alamein battles of Oct/Nov '42, when the 10th Hussars were part of 1st Armoured Division's, 2nd Armoured Brigade; were they the Senior, Second, or junior Regiment?
I think I have seen a contemporary 9th Lancers Crusader with yellow Sqd markings, so perhaps we are now thinking Senior or Junior?

David, according to Bellis the Brigade had The Bays, 9th Lancers and 10th Hussars, in that order.

As an aside, the composition of regiments in the Brigade had was the same when it arrived and was first taken to the cleaners in January 42.
The excellence of [German] forward repair and recovery organisation gives us a salutary lesson in this respect. 7 Armoured Division report, Sept. 1941
