Jon Mills illustrates an Assyrian Bull sign for 10th Army (item 2501) but warns that there is no evidence for its use by the unit, and implies that the example illustrated may be of postwar manufacture.

Interestingly, in relation to Paiforce I have a 12th Indian Division sign in my own collection, which Jon does not illustrate and which thus may also be an 'after the event' item.

Two examples I traced but as I said in my book I have seen no evidence of its use.

Please share any evidence of its us if you have it!
