89th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment, Royal Artillery

From 70 Brigade
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

The 89th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment was part of the 49th Division, and therefore associated with 70th Infantry Brigade, from 29th December 1942. The War Diary was photographed for the period 1943 - January 1944 thereby covering about half of the period the Regiment could have been associated with 70th Infantry Brigade. The only material on file for January 1944 is some of the Field Returns. It seems that the usual War Diary pages for the remainder of 1944 were missing from the file at The National Archives at Kew - though further enquiries will be made.

The Field Return from which the Service Numbers were drawn is a very blurred copy of the document so these numbers are not to be relied on, and will be subject to further research as time permits.
