7th Armoured division NW Europe version

This pattern was in use by the Division throughout their service in England and NW Europe.

When the 7th Armoured Division was recalled to the UK in mid-December 1943 an order was sent ahead to the UK to provide insignia. Somehow the order was misunderstood and the patch produced showed an animal more akin to a kangaroo than a jerboa and of a distinctly brownish shade outlined white on a black background. Given the shortages of all kinds of material the Division was refused permission to obtain replacements and, however grudgingly, had to accept this new badge.

 The Division took Part in the Operation Overlord the invasion of Europe on D Day, 6 June 1944. It fought as part of 21 Army Group from Normandy to Germany. The Division formed the bulk of the British force which entered Berlin for the victory march at the end of the war.
