New Page Tells The Story of “K” Balloon Unit

I’ve just added a page about “K” Balloon Unit (Beach). I chose this unit for my first research into Beach Balloon Units that took part in landings in Italy because it was named in the caption to this photograph. However, when I read the Operations Record Book of “K” Beach Balloon Unit, I was surprised to find that the Unit was not at Salerno but, instead took part in Operation “BAYTOWN” and was at Reggio at the time of the Salerno landings!

So, either they have named the wrong unit in the caption for this picture, or the wrong landing! It is not the only mistake, as the lorry is not a Bedford QL!
