46th RTR was in the 23rd Armd Bde, but it seems the brigade's liver bird sign did not appear on uniforms until July 1943 (Mills, p.512).

Many thanks for posting this. My left-facing version on a square background conforms exactly to the first pattern, front and back, illustrated by you. Very reassuring!

Nice pic. The man kneeling 2nd from left appears to have attached both his patches the wrong way round!

Nice. Either 2/1st or 2/2nd Independent Light Tank Sqn (later Armd Bde Recce Sqns) depending on whether the green or brown part of the patch is worn to the front.

I wonder if the pictured troops are 1st Lancashire Fusiliers, 29th Div, and that the back patch was actually yellow over red. Just a conjecture.

Except that I acquired it a long time ago and paid a pittance for it. So whoever did it put in a lot of work for no appreciable purpose or gain.

Thanks, Alan. This is it -- I don't really know what to make of it. It 'feels' like a good badge but I've never seen another example with an attached scroll.

Can genuine Brecknock Bn cap badges have 'tagged' (i.e. separately attached) scrolls, or is this an indicator of a fake?

Thanks. I ask because I have this, acquired from an extensive collection of Scottish militaria. It's 2 inches (50mm) in diameter. It could be something other than 9th Div, of course.
