British 8th Army Infantry

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.

Struggling with oppressive heat, choking dust, and freezing cold nights, the 8th Army soon become popularly known as the 'Desert Rats' - a nickname adopted from the 7th Armoured Division of the Western Desert force.  Through it all, the Desert Rats remained a thorn in the side their German and Italian opponents.
