I tend to agree. I would certainly not be hasty about getting rid of the Lothian and Border Horse badge.

Very serendipitous (if that's a word)! I don't deal with ebay so I had no idea about this. I was spurred on solely by my collector friend's Xmas card.

Thanks for the additional info, Bryan. The pictured badge came from a friend, now deceased, who collected Scottish militaria. His specialty was the Seaforths and their antecedents (72nd and 78th),...

Yes, that does make sense. I've only seen a small photo of the card's cover, so the triangle could actually be purple and not blue. I'll get my mate to send me a close up and a shot of the inside and...

Thanks for this, Mick. The card is definitely Australian, and I suspect your suggestion that it was a sqn of 4 ALH is the answer. Nevertheless, I'm very surprised that it had a patch of its own, and...

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).

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.
