Some short history: The ECO were an Artillery Regiment [152 Royal Artillery Regiment ] and landed in Italy. Fought their way up through Italy as far as Austria and were relieved at the close of hostilities.
Its sister Regiment [ 151 Regiment ] was also an Artillery unit but were mounted Cavalry on Sherman Tanks, fighting their way across France and Germany. These 2 units have traditionally had a connection to my own Regiment, The Royal Scots Greys, so I was honoured to be asked and they set aside a visit to where my own Regiment took some of its worst casualties, in Salerno.
This is the story of that tour. It's 11:49 Secs inc a 2:14 sec video.
75 slides - 3 audio tracks.
Obviously its not going to be everyone's taste. The target audience is the Old Comrades Association, however I do hope you see something you like. The landscape in that area is stunning and the Cemeteries are magnificent.
