British artillery units at Bardia in December 1940

I was pleasantly surprised to see that a copy I have lists the artillery regiments and their equipment that were at Bardia in December 1940. Note that RHA stands for Royal Horse Artillery, RAA is Royal Australian Artillery, and RA is, of course, Royal Artillery. The units are as follows:
  • 1 Regiment RHA 16-25pdrs
  • 4 Regiment RHA 24-25pdrs
  • 104 Regiment RHA 16-25pdrs
  • 51 Regiment RHA 24-25pdrs
  • 2/1 Field Regiment RAA 24-25pdrs
  • 2/2 Field Regiment RAA 12-4.5in howitzers and 12-18pdrs
  • 7th MEdium Regiment RA 2-60pdrs, 8-6in howitzers, and 8-6in guns
  • 64th Medium Regiment RA 16-4.5in guns
This is from a footnote on page 155 of To Benghazi, by Gavin Long.
