    Mk1* with a Royal artillery flash red/blue of the 20/76 F troop.

    In the book, Road to Dunkirk the unit is mentioned.

    One of the 9th Field's batteries, 20/76 , fired during the night and into the next morning of the 27th May on defensive fire tasks.

    The 20/76 targets included a motor transport column east of the canal as well as mortars and machine guns posts established by the advancing Germans.

    It is a tribute to the speed of the mechanised British artillery could move that the 5th division's commander R.A war diary recorded that all regiments were in action and ready to fire by noon of the 26th May.



    However, the enemy advance was causing problems for some of the regiments. During the afternoon and early evening 20/76 battery, west of Wytschaete , twice had to move it's OP s, it was in danger of being out flanked.
