Monday 24th November 1941

Libya is front page news, nowadays. Even the fight for Moscow comes second. Today's news from Cairo is that a terrific tank and infantry battle is in progress SE of Tobruch, of which the issue is still in doubt; the garrison of Tobruch have now consolidated their gains; the New Zealanders have taken Gambut. 414 Battery moves outside the wire tomorrow.

One of our OP officers reported he had seen two artillery men, probably from the 1st RHA, walk up to an enemy post and surrender. Two more later attempted to do the same but were fired on by our infantry and forced to return.
