For doing research for war-diary's and mapreferences you must know first what scale they did use.
The British used several different scales of the same are (to make it more complex!)
Forinstance Kairouan 1:200.000 (GSGS 4227 Tunisia Serie, sheet 11) The map is also named Kairouan, But there are also bigger maps (smaller scale's (1:100.000 and 1:50.000).
You can contact and ask them for other maps as well:
Defence Geographic and Imagery Intelligence Agency, Defence Geographic centre, Block A, Goverment Building, Hook Rise South, Tolworth, SURBITON, Surrey KT6 7NB in the U.K. What the costs are I do not know. I do have the index for Tunisia of all scales but did not order any yet
What specific battle are you researching? (I doing research after 1 (British) Para Battalion which fought in the Mateur - Beja Sidi N'sir and Djebel Mansour area).
