27 May 40 was thre date of the battle of Huppy. 10 H - as part of the 2nd Armoured Brigade - attacked a line of German Anti-Tank guns early in the morning with dire consequences.




The Regimental History has an excellent account.

Excuse my ignorance but was the 10th Royal Hussars RAC the same as the 10th Royal Hussars (POW)?




I'm researching my uncle's military career and he was with the 10th RH RAC for some years and was killed 27 May 1940 (commemorated at Dunkirk).




Can anyone reading this point me in the right direction as I'd like to learn more about where and what his unit was doing around the time of his death. Also, we only have one photograph of him and I was wondering if there is somewhere or someone I could approach who may have access to photographic records of his unit at this time or earlier.




Thanks in advance for any help given.
