The Battles of Mechili
January 24-25, 1941
On December 9, 1940 the British launched
their offensive, called Operation
Compass, against the Italian 10th Army
in the Egyptian frontier border with
The British were vastly outnumbered, and
the offensive’s goals were limited in
scope (it was just supposed to be a
“five day raid”). However, it wasn’t
long before the surprised and poorly-led
Italians were in headlong retreat.
Following the capture of the Italian
fortress at Bardia, the Italian retreat
turned into a full-scale rout. All that
stood between the British and complete
victory were the remnants of the Italian
Strategic Reserve, the Sabratha 60th
Infantry Division and the Babini Armor
Group (roughly a brigade) who were
dug-in at the frontier village of Mechili.
The war’s first major tank battle in
occurred here as the British vanguard
ran into an Italian force that was ready
and primed for a fight.

The first Thompson Trophy contest
was a six lap race about a course marked by three pylons. As
planes became increasingly more powerful and fast, and the
numbers of attendees grew by thousands each year, the length and
challenge of the race also increased. Nearly each year the
number of pylons and size of the race course, as well as the
number of laps, were increased. The risk and toll on planes and
pilots also rose. From the very first in Cleveland, air racing
was marked as the most dangerous of all sports.
