    You might be better off posting it on the British and Commonwealth badge forum, if you want I can do this for you. John.

    The badge above the stripe is a brass badge worn only on the left sleeve by the 9th.Royal Tank Regiment. Awarded by the French in 1918 for the battle of Souvillers.Brass bursting grenade within a buckled belt and on the belt the French words "Quis"y Frottte, S"Y Brule, He who rubs me burns himself. There is also a book called The T Force story, T Force opperations in N.W Europe 1944---1945 produced by the 5th. Kings Old Comrades Assn. All this info came from people on the British and Commonwealth badge forum, John.

    Thats O.K. one of the members on the British and Commonwealth badge forum, one who gave a lot of the info, asked me to ask you if it would be possible to have a clearer picture of the arm with the badges on it. If you go onto the Badge forum and go to the bottom of the second box you will see , pictures etc. a lot more info about the T unit has been posted since I last looked. Hurry up as I may be banned from it because in temper I just posted a really snotty letter on there, not about the T service but about something else. The person who wanted the clearer picture is Postwarden, Jon, thanks, John.
