    To add a bit more: the "tabs" are divisional insignia for the British 6th Armoured Division.

    Actually I would like to see better pics of the armband. I think it is good. Don't forget these were made by more than one maker and the design details change. This one is badly made enough to be good. Originals are often more crude than the fakes for once.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A close up on the joint (from the inside) where it has been sewn together would be useful. Plus a nice close up of the front.

    The brit flashes are worth about £15 in their own right.

    Cheers, Ade.
