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).

M awarded to 2371610 L CPL R H BAGLEY R. Africa star with 8th Army bar. The medals are swing-mounted for wear and come accompanied with Bagley’s regimental cap badge. Signalman (L/Cpl) Robert Herbert Bagley was serving with the 8th Indian Division 13th Corps at the time of the award of the Military Medal. The award appeared in the London Gazette 7.12.1944, the citation / recommendation for the award was as follows. On the night of 11-12 May 44 during the Gari River crossing operation L/Cpl BAGLEY R. Volunteered to remain alone with his wireless set at the Beach Signal Masters post, after his second operator had to be withdrawn suffering from shell shock. Besides operating his wireless set L/Cpl Bagley acted as telephone orderly, and on many occasions during the night crawled out of his slit trench to repair the telephone line himself despite constant and accurate shelling, mortaring and machine-gun fire. By his devotion to duty and complete disregard for his personal safety, L/Cpl Bagley maintained both line and wireless comm single-handed during the most critical stage of the assault. The crossing of the Gari river, otherwise known as the Rapido river was of vital importance to the success of the fourth and final battle for Monte Cassino. The swing-mount is 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) across. The bottom of the two larger, outside medals, hang 3.5 inches (9 cm) below the mount. The medals weigh 145 g alone, and 155 g with the badge cap.
