|Summary of Events and Information
|During April the planning of future operations from the Regimental point of view
occupied much thought, and similar work to that carried out before the invasion of
Italy. Staff tables showing allocation of Btys vehicles to pre-allotted serials
were prepared, and there is a certain amount of "MOST SECRET" correspondence with
Div H.Q. Towards the end of the month "TOP SECRET" - COMMANDING OFFICER ONLY
documents are not at all uncommon.
|The whole time, Bty training and schemes, as shown in Bty War Diaries continues
apace, and as we get more and more equipped, so the training can be more complete.
|General R. Gordon Finlayson visited the regiment and talked to the men.
|Leave for all services suspended, except on special compassionate grounds.
|a Regimental Audit Board audited the Regiments accounts.
|Trials on loading of vehicles carried out.
|The 2 17 pdr Btys are still lacking a number of their B Echelon vehicles, but we
are expecting them shortly now.
