The paper reviews recent experimental work on scattering experiments at intermediate energy on few body systems, highlighting their role in helping to understand 3 nucleon forces. Representative results are summarised , and compared with relevant theory (e.g Fadeev with and without 3NF). The result is shown that the 3NF are important for backwards angle scattering. As a paper, this represents well a short review of the presented work at the EFB24 conference, and as such it should form part of the recorded proceedings. I recommend that it is published essentially as is, with one minor typo that can be corrected in the production stage, and one optional change (to the abstract) that the author can add at the production stage if they wish

Requested changes

- The words “Figure caption is below the figure” should be removed from just below figure 1.

- The abstract gives only a very brief description of what the paper is about, not what the results or conclusions are. Ideally, this should be extended to abstract key results and conclusions.
