Mersa Matruh

On 27 June 1942 south of Mersa Matruh, Egypt, Private Wakenshaw was a member of a crew of a 2 pounder (907 g) anti-tank gun, when the enemy attacked, silencing the gun and killing or seriously wounded all the crew. Private Wakenshaw's left arm was blown off but he crawled back to his gun, loaded it with one arm and fired five more rounds with considerable effect. He was then blown away from the gun by an enemy shell and was again severely wounded, but he still managed to crawl back and was preparing to fire again when a direct hit on the ammunition killed him and destroyed the gun. mascot battles Fall of France Arras (Battle of Arras (1940)) Ypres-Comines Canal Dunkirk Mersa Matruh Akarit Battle of Gazala First Battle of El Alamein Second Battle of El Alamein Mareth Line Operation Husky D Day Invasion of Normandy Operation Perch Battle for Caen Operation Bluecoat Operation Pugilist Operation Market Garden Enfidaville Nederrijn notable_commanders Maj.

No. 451 Squadron was transferred to Mersa Matruh in Egypt on 8 January 1943 and redesignated a fighter squadron. The squadron was responsible for air defence of part of the Nile Delta and nearby convoys and in February it received a detachment of Supermarine Spitfire fighters for high-altitude interceptions. Aircraft from the squadron saw combat on only one occasion during the first six months of 1943 and morale remained low; the RAAF Historical Section has written that this period marked "the nadir of the squadron". In January No. 451 Squadron's commander Wing Commander D.R. Chapman proposed to RAAF Overseas Headquarters that the unit be transferred to Australia but this was rejected. Chapman was replaced early in May after he wrote a letter to the headquarters of No. 219 Group RAF in March which complained about the squadron's lack of employment and appeared to condone the poor morale within the unit. Herington (1954), pp. 393–394 No. 451 Squadron's only offensive action during the year was a raid against Crete on 23 July in which it contributed six Hurricanes to a force of Beaufighter (Bristol Beaufighter) heavy fighters and Baltimore (Martin Baltimore) bombers. Three of these Hurricanes were lost during the operation. RAAF Historical Section (1995), pp. 113–114 The '''22nd Infantry Brigade''' was formed by the conversion of the 29th Infantry Brigade (29th Infantry Brigade (United Kingdom)) on 3 September 1939 and in March 1940 became responsible for all the troops in the Mersa Matruh Garrison area. In February 1941 the unit was reformed and renamed the 22nd Guards Brigade on 20 March 1941. It was converted to the 200th Guards Brigade (14 January 1942) and then finally the 201st Guards Motor Brigade (25 May 1942).
