I am urgently in need of a copy of SS135 (the December 1916 edition), in particular Sect XIV Action of Tanks, and also SS143 and SS144. Can anyone help please?

Thanks IPT. It would appear that I don't want SS143 after all.  But I do need SS135 and SS144.

Thanks IPT, I have the 1918 version (from that source), it's the 1916 version I am after.

Gareth,

 

Gareth, I don't have a copy, but the AWM and NAM both have the 1916 version of SS 144. If you don't find it you could try SS 600 Organisation of the Infantry Battalion and Normal Formation for the Attack, in which SS 144 was subsumed in April 1917. Unfortunately for you, the only copy of SS 600 I know of is at the AWM, it is not at the IWM or NAM.

 

Cheers,

Hendo

Don't know if you ever got any feedback.

I can email you (or upload) ss143 if you still want it
