A veteran I knew said he and his pals (in 1st Worcestershire) hated working with tanks. In the morning when the tanks started their engines they’d always get a quick stink of Jerry. The feeling he had was that Jerry arty was small in number but fast to respond. It’s also worth remembering that a German inf div had much less arty support than a British division.

Perhaps German RECCE was better distributed to call it in?!

The Germans used mortars as their rapid response artillery which, IIRC, could bring down the same weight of fire as their 75mm guns.

As I typed my previous post I did wonder if Eric could tell mortars from 105s? Not many 75mm IGs around in October '44 onwards, but you're right. IGs and mortars would be faster than arty - as they are in bkc.
