North Africa, December 9th 1940: After the swift fall of Nibeiwa, the 7th Royal Tank Regiment immediately sped north to maintain the initiative. The 7th RTR spearheaded the advance leading the 5th Indian Brigade. The 5th Indian Brigade did not fight at Nibeiwa, it instead was given orders to move around and bypass it and link up with the 7th RTR for the attack on the Tummars and it was determined to continue the success. At noon on the 9th of December, Matildas came lumbering out of the sandstorm like prehistoric beasts to sow terror and panic among the Libyans. However, unlike at Nibeiwa, the battle of the Tummars gave the allies a taste of how tenacious the coming campaign would become.
