Panzergruppe Intelligence Assessment 10 January 1942

Enemy Behaviour 10 January 1942

The German rearguard holding today at 12km east of Marsa el Brega did not have enemy contact. Enemy patrol activity as on previous day against sector Maaten el Cleibat – B. es Suera. According to aerial reconnaissance weak reinforcements are brought up from area Msus to area Antelat – el Haselat – Giof el Matar. According to radio intercepts, 5 Indian Brigade (Barce) has issued a weakly training programme to subordinated units regarding formation training and patrol activity. Based on this combat use of 4 Indian Division is apparently not to be expected.
