The 53rd Blog

I've been hit with a deluge of enquiries and information on 53rd Welsh Division of late, whether its information on 83rd Field Regiment, the men of 4 Welch, 1/5th Welch and even 285 Field Company! Crikey!

Keeping up with it is most enjoyable though!

At the same time I've begun adding unit histories (finally) to the 53rd Recce page, 1/5th Welch page and will soon have the RWF pages suitably done, with the Engineers falling in next...


116 LAA should also be sorted within a week or so.


As per usual, any sources, stories, photographs, let me know as I'd love to include them to make this the (well it is already so....) finest site on 53rd Welsh Division!

I noticed some time ago that Swiper showed an interest in the Liberator bomber crash at Cheshunt Herts during 1944, if this is still the case I would be pleased to help
