Details

The Long Range Desert Group (originally Long Range Patrol) was formed in Egypt in 1940 and initially comprised mailnly New Zealand volunteers. It was tasked with reconnaissance behind enemy lines and often assisted with covert operations. Perhaps its most vital role was the monitoring and reporting of enemy movements and compositions. The LRDG numbered around 350 and performed operations in Greece, Italy and the Balkans before its disbanding in 1945.

For information on the LRDG, check out http://lrdg.org/ which has a nice photo section and some good tips for books and web histories. This site -http://lrdg.hegewisch.net/lrdgvehicles.html - has all the above plus a nice study on vehicles of the LRDG.
