        Many 75mm Armed COmposites served with both the US and British Forces in North West Europe. In the British Army they served mainly in 33rd Armoured Brigade but 8 AB had a few in early 45. The Firefly composites were in almost all commonwealth formations. In the US Army they were in a number of divisions including 6AD which had large hull numbers. Try the Zaloga Concord titles on US Armoured forces in France, Holland and Germany which have many pictures of these.
