Bardia[edit]

This infantry division captured Bardia. However the battle of Bardia is not included here. This must be an oversight. It is mentioned in a few sources, including Wikipedia, which I quote: "the 7,000 strong garrison at Bardia surrendered on 2 January 1942 after an attack by 2nd South African Division"

Fully agree, I am working on the 6 SA Armoured Div now, will do that in due course. Alternatively - please add such reference of the Bardia battle to the article. Farawayman (talk) 17:01, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

OK, I have added the Battle of Bardia, and have mentioned the number of prisoners because this was significant. references & cross references can be found here:
