Default My Canadian Cloth - 12th CTR

Three Rivers Regt, two embroidered items: Edwards 122 and Sexton 36b. When was the title worn?

Nice patch for the 12 Canadian Tank Regiment. These patches were replaced by the 12 CAR (Canadian Armoured Regiment) after the designation changed in 1943. There is no concensus on the 12 CTR tablet title.

Hi Bill, well since the TRR did not wear a shoulder title until they were in the Netherlands I thought of showing the way the Canadian Armoured Corps and the Brigade patch was worn in Italy. Now, I don't known if the Brigade patch has 12 CTR or 12 CAR on these photographs. I have the (not so good) regimental history and in it there's a photograph of three privates ,in Italy dated 1943, and one man can be seen wearing the Armoured title and the Brigade patch with 12 CTR (sorry,no scanner).
Sorry I didn't make my post clearer.
Cheers
Jo

Hi Jo, I wasn't sure if you were referring to the patch or that odd 12 CTR red on blue strip. I think Dwayne H has some information on this title.
The manner of "patching" in Italy was distinctly different from NW Europe, and your images are great examples of the system.
