Historical Background:
After the capture of 5th NZ Brigade HQ at Sidi Azeiz, the 15.Panzer Division continued to advance on the Trigh Capuzzo to reach Sidi Rezegh. At Bir el Chleta, British 22nd Armoured Brigade had prepared a barrage on the Trigh Capuzzo and stopped the Panzer Regiment 8, at the head of the German column. Then, the 4th Armoured Brigade ran into the right flank of the 15. Panzer Division. But as usual, Germans had put their anti-tank guns on their flanks and stopped the British attack. At the end of the day, British tanks withdrew and let the way open to the 15.Panzer Division.
