The 88th Anti-Tank Regiment, Royal Artillery, was attached to the 49th Infantry Division - of which 70th Infantry Brigade was also a part - from 17th June 1942 until 24th July 1943. Unfortunately, the War Diary was only photographed for 1942, and therefore the only period which is documented on the Website is from June to December 1942. Efforts will continue to trace and document the War Diary for 1943.

To read the Wikipedia article on this unit - which was created by the conversion of the 2/9th Battalion of the Manchester Regiment - please click here.
