British 8th Army Carrier Patrol

The British 8th Army Carrier Patrol is just the thing to show the Afrika Korps they can't have it all their own way!

The British 8th Army was formed from the Western Desert Force in 1941.  It comprised of men from across the British Commonwealth - British, New Zealanders, Australians, Indians and South Africans. The vast open expanses of the western desert made for a war of manoeuvre and out-manoeuvre, where reconnaissance by scouting patrols were vital to success.

Following its early successes against the Italians in North Africa, the 8th Army suddenly faced a new, more deadly foe - the Deutsches Afrika Korps led by their mercurial commander, Erwin Rommel. Thus began a series of operations with Allied and Axis forces being pushed back hundreds of miles only to regain that territory and more, with legendary battles at El Alamein, Tobruk and Beda Fomm.

With victory in North Africa, the fighting soon encompassed Sicily and then Italy itself.
