The Royal Berkshire Regiment in the Second World War - 10th Battalion


A paperback book of 132 pages with the addition of extracts from the Regimental History, the Organisation of Battle and an Index makes this latest edition a much improved version. This book is for all those with an interest in the 10th Battalion Royal Berkshires during World War 2. The original diary is only to be seen at the National Archives at Kew, London, so publishing this transcript will assist all those who are interested and also hopefully reduce the demand to see the originals. The narrative text, is taken from “The fighting Tenth” by David R C West, relating to the service of the 10th Battalion Royal Berkshires in World War 2, and a transcription from the Battalion War Diary for the period September 1942 – May 1944 will hopefully give as complete a picture as possible.
