Written and compiled by members of the Regiment, published April 1946. 277 pages with Honours and Awards, Roll of Honour and Wounded & Prisoners. Various photographs and fold out maps. Also 23rd Hussars war diaries, any material about Operation Bluecoat.
Official war diary held at The National Archives. Pricey to get copied.
There is another version (almost as complete) held at The Tank Museum library. This was one of a large number discovered in boxes in the old RACMRO cellars at Chester. These are the second copy which do not always have the full set of attachments. They were going to be thrown out until someone thought about keeping them and thus a very good collection at the museum.
Try searching abebooks.co.uk for the history. I found my copy there.
Oh and all the diaries held by the Tank Museum have been transcribed. It might be worth trying to buy a copy of the transcription.
Not if you get me to copy them they ain't. I charge 10p per page compared to the National Archives £1 something or other. The Tank Museum does have copies of the diaries but they don't have the appendices that accompany the actual diary pages.
There's six 23 Hussars war diaries at the National Archives covering 1939 to 1945. I already have the three covering 1944 to 1945 so drop me a message if you'd like to obtain copies, if you order the three I don't have I'm sure I could knock a deal together for you.
