Operation Limerick

This was a British unrealised offensive by Lieutenant General W. H. E. Gott’s XIII Corps of Lieutenant General N. M. Ritchie’s 8th Army in the Battle of Gazala (May 1942).

To have been launched in the area to the south-west of Tobruk, ‘Limerick’ was cancelled as a result of the emergence of unfavourable circumstances as the battle developed.
