The bad mountain roads combined with a complete lack of brakes on many vehicles
resulted in a score of three Italians killed, minor injuries to a couple
of our own men and the arrival at GRAVINA with ten vehicles missing.
The camp was the usual Italian vineyard four miles from town.
The Regiment immediately got busy with signal cable and began repairing
the Motor Transport.
It was here that
paid his fifth visit to the Unit on the 1st December 1943.
A few days later a move was made into the Town of GRAVINA itself with men being
billetted in a Fascist school.
An impressive guard mount was
immediately laid on for the Regimental Guard and Town Patrol.
