As a vehicle marking the Arm of Service marking with the white band means that the unit is attached directly to a formation higher than a Division.

The white band at the top means a Corps unit

At the bottom Army troops.

Diagonally bottom left to top right Army Group.

Diagonally top left to bottom right GHQ, Garrison and Area troops.
