5th Airlanding Anti-Tank Battery R.A.


At the end of 1944 it was decided by the war office and HQ 1st British Airborne Corps that due to the over whelming allied air superiority that there was no further requirement for a Light anti aircraft battery.  As a result on the 21st January 1944 2nd Airlanding LAA Battery R.A. (T.A.) was converted into two anti-tank batteries. One of these batteries was 5th Airlanding Anti-Tank Battery R.A.
