After some hard fighting, including 2nd Devons at Regalbuto amongst the foothills of Mount Etna, the Germans were driven from Sicily and the Allies prepared to invade Italy. The Brigades second assault landing was at Porto San Venere on 7 September 1943. After this they were recalled home, along with the rest of 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division, as they were now experienced amphibious assault troops, to prepare for the invasion of France.

to make it flow properly and to make sure information is under the right heading. Also, there must be something to say since 1904! Wasn't Alexandria one of the Afrika Corps' main targets? El Alamein is only 64 miles west. Also little popular culture - e.g. ''Ice Cold in Alex''. -- ALoan (User:ALoan) (Talk) (User_talk:ALoan) 12:10, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC) *Object. A sentence like ''See Library of Alexandria for stories and theories regarding its destruction at about this time.'' appearing as a stand-alone paragraph jars, and even more so when the library is not covered until the next paragraph. I'd also like something on writers associated with the city: e.g. Lawrence Durrell and Constantine P. Cavafy. Filiocht (User:Filiocht) 12:30, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC) At the beginning of July the Eighth Army had reached their final defensive position before Alexandria at the rail junction of El Alamein. The DAK was understrength from its recent battles, but Rommel attempted an attack along Ruweisat with the 15th Panzer and the remainder of the DAK. Only minor progress was made, British counterattacks and mounting German losses caused Rommel to call off the attack on July 22. Another attack was attempted on August 30, with Rommel's armoured forces attacking the southern flank. The 15th Panzer Division reached as far as the Alam Halfa ridge on September 1, but failed to break through the British defences. At this point Rommel went on the defensive and began to build a comprehensive position with deep minefields. The 15th Panzer Division formed the reserve in the northern part of the front, with the 21st Panzer to the south. Second World War Captain Queripel had been commissioned into the 2nd Battalion, Royal Sussex Regiment (now the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (PWRR)) just before the start of the Second World War. After the battle of El Alamein in 1942 (where they sustained heavy casualties) the Battalion was selected to be converted to a parachute battalion. Originally, when the Battalion was scheduled for conversion it was known as ‘S’ Battalion. However, the War Office then decreed that a regular unit could not be transferred to the Army Air Corps and the Battalion remained on strength bolstered by men of the 4th & 5th Battalions. There were 200 or so men of the 2nd Battalion who volunteered for parachute training and they formed the basis of the 10th Parachute Battalion at Kabrit under Lieutenant-Colonel KBI Smyth OBE of the South Wales Borderers. Attempts were made to retain the ‘S’ for Sussex in 10 Para’s title but the War Office ruled against this. commands battles El Alamein, Egypt awards VIctoria Cross Royal Victorian Order birth_place Day Dawn (Day Dawn, Western Australia), Western Australia, Australia death_place El Alamein, Egypt placeofburial El Alamein War Cemetery DATE OF DEATH 22 July 1942 PLACE OF DEATH El Alamein, Egypt Following a period of rest and light garrison duties in Syria, the 2 48th Battalion was rushed to El Alamein, Egypt, to reinforce the British Eighth Army (Eighth Army (United Kingdom)).
