The three Sidi Omars

Post by ClintHardware » 10 Oct 2022 19:36

Thought this might help solve some confusions:-

There were three Sidi Omar locations that XIII Corps’ War Diary usefully lists within its Intelligence Summary No. 32 (dated 24th October 1941) with grid references:

1. LIBYAN SIDI OMAR 49433593
2. SIDI OMAR NUOVO 49873601
3. EGYPTIAN SIDI OMAR 49653575

The grid references at least give some idea of the relation to each other even if you don't have the right map to hand.
Imperialism and Re-Armament NOW !
