I'm sure my late father would be pleased to know that as he along with others had been dropped off at night along the coast as part of a diversionary ploy

There was a long way West to go in North Africa and many battles, but Winstone Churchill had made his end of the beginning speech. I think this goes to signify the end of the battle of Egypt. A major turning point with operation Torch to come and Kasserine Pass still to fight.

My father like many others drove and fought from Egypt west to Sicily via Tunis and all points in between with little knowledge of speeches made other than the one telling them they would disengage and return to RN-control before returning home in preparation for a European invasion
