About this title


This World War 2 regiment, formed in Bristol, England in 1939 as an offshoot of the 44th battalion, spent 95% of its overseas service in contact with its enemy the German Army. It saw action in North Africa including El Alamein, Mareth and Sfax, as well as Sicily, Italy and Greece. Although disbanded after 10 years the regiment gained a reputation and record that has never been equalled. Using personal accounts of members, details from the regimental war diary, and vivid descriptions of the many battles in which they took part, the author brings to life the endurance, excitement and tragedy of the regiments brief existence.

About the Author:

Steven Hamilton has for many years studied military history as a hobby. A visit to his grandfather's grave focussed his attention on the regiment in whose service Lieutenant Corporal 'Paddy' Clifford was killed. Since then the author has written a number of articles for the Royal Tank Regiments quarterly journal TANK, and assisted other authors in their works of military history. At present he is undertaking a revision the whole of the World War II Roll of Honour for the Royal Armoured Corps, involving over seventy regiments; many will for the first time have their own Roll of Honour. As an unofficial archivist he gets a great deal of satisfaction from helping 'next of kin' and old comrades enquiring about family members and friends. Meanwhile he is employed as a carpenter in Germany. In his spare time he enjoys life in the fast lane, often literally so on his 1000cc motorcycle, frequently making the long journey to England on it. His home town is Derby, where his two children Dean and Stephanie live.
