Montanari identifies this unit as "IV gruppo squadroni mtr. Genova Cavalleria" in the OOB for April 1,1941 in Allegato 2, p. 782, in Tripoli. The "VI gruppo squadroni mtr. Lancieri di Aosta" is also mentioned as mitraglieri-a machine-gun unit-in the same OOB. Dili stated in a post in the Comando Supremo Forum that both of these gruppi squadroni mitraglieri were also present in Tripoli on 10/6/40, but I don't know his source.Oasis wrote: so... is correct Genova Cavalleria MG an not arm/cars !!! my error
The Sidi Rezegh Battles 1941 (p. 479) cites a German document of Panzergruppe Afrika which stated there were 24 Italian armoured cars present on Nov 18,1941 (for Crusader). I believe these were mostly if not entirely with RECAM, and that those same two gruppi-Genova Cavalleria then in Bardia, and Lancieri di Aosta attached to Divisione Pavia-were still purely machine-gun units.
Thanks for the information regarding the names of Savona's capisaldi.
