I have access to the spreadsheet which I think you have taken a screenshot from so no worries there. I wasn't looking for a specific unit, it was more that I came across a complaint about the FATs in August 44.
I guess actually any more information I could turn up on vehicle holdings for 7th Canadian AT Regiment might be helpful. But I don't know how I would work from that (which I think was a Corps level unit) to which field company or LAD was assigned to it. I have looked at their WD in the past.The performance of the wheeled tractor drawn 17-pounder equipment has not proved satisfactory and the need for more 17-pounder SP equipments has been represented by British as well as Canadian unit formations.
P.S. and how interesting that we were mostly using Morris FATs!
P.P.S. I don't suppose you have any experience hunting down 21st Army Group / 1st Canadian Army memos at LAC?
I’m not exactly sure what your looking for in your reference. If your looking for correspondence in reference to something sent “up the chain” from the 7th Cdn AT Regiment, I would look thru the War diaries of the HQ’s unit above them, so I would first look at 1 Cdn Corp, RCA war diaries, then CCRA war diaries, then First Cdn Army RCA HQ’s war diaries........before I would even attempt to look at 21 Army Group HQ AGRA
In the War diaries list, I would like thru the files of these units first
