A detailed account of the regiment’s part in the 1940 Belgian campaign and the fall back to Dunkirk. Published in August 1941 less than a year after the events it describes, it was compiled from Squadron Diaries and personal narratives. By no means an official history, it was privately distributed and includes a Roll of Honour (KIA., POW., DOW., & Missing) and a short account of the Squadron’s previous posting in Palestine.
