Major Hadwick WW2 Africa Italy 1939-45 star GSM Palestine 1945-48 group. El Alamein 1942 – Afrika Corps Germans in Panzer IV surrender to British Tommies. The Headquarters (HQ) of 2nd AGRA was formed at the Scotch Corner Hotel, Darlington, on 24 August 1942 from elements of Headquarters RA, First Army. It was assigned to First Army for the landings in North Africa (Operation Torch), and first went into action in March 1943, supporting IX Corps in Tunisia. It was with V Corps by the end of the campaign in May 1943, and then prepared for the Allied invasion of Italy. Royal Field Artillery North Africa – anti tank gun 2nd Field Regiment Royal Artillery The make-up of an AGRA during the Italian Campaign was extremely flexible: it could include army field regiments (25-pounders), medium regiments (4.5-inch or 5.5-inch guns) and heavy regiments (7.2-inch howitzers). It might also be augmented with 3.7-inch heavy anti-aircraft (HAA) guns loaned by the AA brigades for additional ground support fire. 2nd AGRA landed at Salerno in Italy with X Corps soon after the assault landings (Operation Avalanche) on 9 September 1943. 12th AA Brigade was responsible for the AA defence of the beachhead, and its HAA guns had also been firing in support of the infantry divisions during the first few days before 2nd AGRA arrived. When the break-out from the beachhead got under way on 18 September, 12th AA Bde provided a Light AA battery to protect 2nd AGRA’s medium gun areas around Mango. 2nd AGRA then supported X Corps in its advance to Naples and the crossing of the River Volturno. In the advance beyond the Voluturno it was reinforced by 214 (Southsea) Battery from 57th (Wessex) HAA Regiment, to fire in the medium role and the followed the advance in the HAA role. Scammell Pioneer tractor towing a 7.2-inch howitzer of 56th Heavy Regiment round a tight corner in Italy, 23 December 1943. The utility of the 3.7-inch gun for medium artillery work, and the declining threat from the Luftwaffe, meant that HAA units were increasingly used in the ground fire role. Despite the confusion in titles, 2nd AA Brigade actually operated as’2nd AGRA (AA)’ in the later stages of the campaign. In December 1943 2nd AGRA fired in support of 201st Guards Brigade’s attack up’Bare Arse Ridge’ on 6 November during the during the Battle of Monte Camino. Monte Cassino 1944 It supported 56th (London) Infantry Division of X Corps during the assault crossing of the Garigliano in January 1944, In February 1944, 2nd AGRA was sent with three field and five medium regiments to support the New Zealand Corps in operations against Monte Cassino (Captain Hadwick wounded February 1944). By late May, 2nd AGRA was supporting X Corps’ advance after Operation Diadem had broken through the German Winter Line, and in the subsequent pursuit to Lake Trasimeno and advance to Florence, with the following order of battle. It continued with X Corps during Operation Olive to breach the Gothic Line in August, and was with II Polish Corps in October. For the Allied Spring 1945 offensive in Italy (Operation Grapeshot), 2nd AGRA supported V Corps with five medium regiments 56th Heavy Rgt having been transferred to 21st Army Group in Belgium by that stage. At the end of the war HQ 2nd AGRA appears to have been redesignated HQ 180th Infantry Brigade in the Central Mediterranean Force. British troops in Palestine 1945-48 In November 1947, the United Nations recommended the partition of Palestine and the establishment of Arab and Jewish States. On 15 May 1948, Britain gave up her mandate. The British Army departed from Palestine leaving the Jews and the Arabs to fight it out in the war that followed. The campaign had cost 338 British lives. The clasp Palestine 1945-48 was added to the General Service Medal and awarded to soldiers who served in Palestine between 27 September 1945 (the date a state of emergency was declared) and 30 June 1948 (when the last British troops departed).
