10th Hussars

Post by 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 enemy had superiority in numbers, his tanks were more heavily armoured, they had larger calibre guns with nearly twice the effective range of ours, and their telescopes were superior. 5 RTR 19/11/41
