143rd Field Regiment, Royal Artillery. War Diary 1942
As indicated earlier - the War Diary for the period from January to April inclusive is not included within this Website, as the Field Regiment remained in Iceland while 70th Brigade had returned to the UK, and they could not, therefore, have worked together.
A series of photographs taken by, or featuring Sergeant Douglas HYMERS were kindly submitted by his son, Paul, to the Lead Researcher in support of the Memorial Page on 143rd Field Regiment. The Regiment was based at Alafoss - alongside 70th Brigade HQ for some time - and some of the images have been inserted here, as it is not certain exactly when during the sojourn in Iceland they were taken. The images are described in captions below.
