WW2 79th ARMOURED DIVISION FORMATION SIGN.

A fine woven WW II example. Worn by among others the 22nd Dragoon Guards. Ref Morris Part 1 p15 no.16.

The badge was derived from the arms of the first commander of the Division, Sir Percy Hobart, whose coat of arms included a 'bull passant'. Specialized Armour Training Establishment RAC. The 79th Armoured Division was formed in the UK on 14 August 1942 as a standard armoured division. In April 1943 it was re-organized and tasked to devise and test armoured assault equipment for the D-Day landings and the campaign in North West Europe. Eventually the Division commanded or otherwise developed a brigade (30 Brigade) of 'Crab' flail tanks, for the breaching of minefields, a brigade (1 Assault Brigade RE) of Churchill tanks converted to Engineer tasks (the Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers or 'AVRE'), and a number of independent units such as the Churchill-based 'Crocodile' flamethrower, armoured personnel carriers based on the Canadian Ram tank ('Kangaroo') and the American 'Buffalo' amphibious personnel carrier (Landing Vehicle Tracked - LVT). Development of the swimming DD (Duplex Drive) tanks also fell to the Division. The Division formed specialist assault teams for the D-Day landings for the purposes of breaching and clearing the shore defences. It subsequently provided specialist support throughout the campaign, frequently with units or even sub-units down to Troop level detached for specific operations. Involved in all the heavy fighting right up until VE Day.
