HU 25299. Portrait of Captain David Lloyd Owen with Private 'Tich' Cave on the back of the 30 cwt truck behind outside the Farouk Hotel in Siwa. Lloyd Owen joined the Yeomanry ('Y') Patrol of the Long Range Desert Group in mid 1941 and went on to lead it after the original Commanding Officer was wounded

On November the day before the battle at Bir el Gubi, British Matilda tanks roll forward during the opening phase of Operation Crusader. The British armor spearheaded an effort to reach the Australian garrison besieged at the Libyan port of Tobruk.

High expectations of Operation Crusader

For the first time British and Empire troops will meet Germans with an ample equipment in modern weapons of all kinds. The battle itself will affect the whole course of the War. Now is the time to strike the hardest blow yet for final Victory, Home and Freedom. The Desert Army may add a page to history which will rank with Blenheim and with Waterloo. The eyes of all nations are upon you.
