Does anyone know where the XVII Btg carri (m) arrived in North Africa?

I would assume either Tripoli or Tunis.

Thanks.
Cheers; Dave.

Thanks for that.

I was surprised to see August. I thought that it was with Centauro and that November was more likely?

Kind Regards,
David.

In effect only Hq and 1.a compagnia went in AS at this date and during the Libia retreat to Tunisia it fought in Raggruppamento Ariete/Raggruppamento Cantaluppi...the others tanks went in AS/Tunisia trought december 1942 (no date know) and the others tankers went to Tunisia in January/February 1943 from Corsica... The 17.o battaglione carri not fought with Centauro Division since 1943 in Tunisia.
All the best
Maurizio
