Vol. 33 No. 11 ……. Cover: July’s cover showed the 1st Sec of Btry B, MCth FA Bn. Capt. R. Carl Riede, of that outfit, writes: “The picture was taken the morning of 20 Feb 43, when the battery was in position just west of Kasserine Pass. We had been supporting a battalion of infantry at El Mac El Abiod (SE of Tebessa), but the afternoon of 19 Feb I received orders to rejoin the battalion in the vicinity of the pass. We left after dark, marched some 30-odd miles, and arrived there at about 0200 hrs. We were unable to find a good position area, so finally occupied position in four Arab houses of which the illustration shows one, modifying them slightly to meet our needs. The morning of the 20th at about 1100 hrs, German infantry and armor broke through and we were forced to fall back.” ….. Articles:
