    Default TT Formation Badges from Bayeux, Normandy

    Hello,

    Here are two 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division formation badges I found at my grandmother's in the late 70s. I was told my grandparents, who lived in Bayeux (Normandy) accommodated British TTs after D-Day and I later found some pictures and letters that confirmed the story.

    Hoping that everybody will enjoy my post,

    Didier

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
