Mr A Trigg has sent details and a number of photographs of his father, Gunner Robert (Bob) Alfred Trigg - 1137967 - who was in the 61st Anti-Tank Regiment in the 51st Highland Division.

Bob Trigg served from 1942 to 1947. After completing his basic training at Catterick he sailed to North Africa on the Queen Mary as a reinforcement after Alamein. From there he served in North Africa, Sicily, and North-West Europe.

It is presumed these photos were taken sometime between May and July 1943 as the photo captioned 'Greasing the wheels' was annotated as 'Preparation prior to embarkation to Sicily'. The 61st Anti-Tank Reg. set sail for Sicily from SFAX in Tunisia on 8th July '43.
