Default Cloth badges

Someone on another forum posted this picture and is interested to know what the two cloth badges are. I am posting the picture on his behalf.

From my research I have found conflicting information: the shield badge appears to be for the GHQ Troops, 21 Army Group, according to a poster I have published by Gale & Polden. However, Brian Davis's book, British Army Cloth Insignia states that it is British Troops in France (n.d.), Howard Cole's Formation Badges of World War 2 states that it was 8th Division formed in Palestine in 1938 and disbanded in Egypt in 1940.

All comments are welcome.
Thanks,
David
