Dear All

I recently received an email from Ms Hirst in Germany asking for information on suppliers of the following Richardson WWII Battle series cultivars:

‘Alamein’, ‘Tripoli’, ‘Bardia’, ‘Tobruk’, ‘Benghazi’, ‘Algeciras’ and ‘Agheila’.

They are all pre-1945 cultivars so I wonder if any are still offered for sale.  However, if anyone knows of suppliers or has information which may be of use, and which I can pass on to Ms Hirst, I would love to hear from you.  I believe there are more cultivars in this series.

Ms Hirst also mentioned another cultivar called ‘Trafalgar’ which is not a Richardson and owes more to Napoleon than WWII!  But, again, if you have any information I’d be happy to pass it on.

Many thanks
