Yes I am looking into finding a copy of this book.
Here is another question what role would a HQ defense battalion do?
I dont understand what HQ defense means?
Providing security for the HQ position?
Are they also used as runners?
Bringing/issuing HQ orders to their Artillery regiments?,
Observing front lines positions, observing for intell for HQ?
Interfacing with other Army command bodies?
Would they be providing security escort for all officers traveling to Fro other Army HQs?
Would they be front line spotters for the artillery regiments?
The fact they had a Armored car squadron, what would that be used for?
Traveling around the field of operations gathering intell & observing?
Also what is made of this patch with the RMR on the 1st Canadian Army Patch taken from here:
Also according to From D-day to VE-Day The Candian Soldier by Jean BOUCHERY pg 10
The Unit also used a vehicle symbol of 459 in white on a green over blue square which is in step with Canadian markings as of 10 June 44
In regards to the black beret could it be possible that like the Royal Winnipeg Rifles they retained the black beret or is it possible that some wore khaki and some black?
Just trying to get to the bottom of things. Thanks again in advance!
