Re: Background ruins

Hello Simon

I have tried, without success, to find a 57th Heavy Field Regiment in either Royal Artillery or Royal Canadian Artillery sites. I have found plenty of units starting with 57th, but after that they are not showing as a Heavy Field Regiment.

You might have better luck if you address your query directly to one of those type of sites instead of here where we are aviation related.

Here is some background data for you:

Good luck in your quest.

Allan

Re: Background ruins

Hello Kutscha

Apologies for the late response, but I have only just found your reply. However, it would seem that Simon113 has not responded either, and he was the person asking the question in the first place!?

regards

Allan
