    Gentlemen,

    Does this patch appear to be real? It is actually a section of sleeve cut from a uniform. Thanks!

    Hi Jim,

    The shoulder title and 1st Armoured Division patch appear to be genuine. I suspect the same for the unit flash below, possibly MP.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hi again Jim,

    Further to your PM question - the Polish 1st Armoured Division insignia was applied both ‘trimmed’ and also like this. It is true that the more common application was for the insignia to either be trimmed, or the edge ‘folded’ under.

    Posted below is a period colour photograph with the caption: Gosford House, April 1943. A relaxing moment, a bombardier of motorized artillery paints Easter eggs.

    Clearly visible is the ‘full size’ patch stitched onto his battledress tunic.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Greetings,

    I have seen the service stripe on 2nd Corps tunics, however I have never seen a photo of its use on 1st Division tunics.

    Hello,
    These service stripes are indeed very strange… I have never seen such insignias on arms for battledress in 1rst polish armoured division… I would not buy them…

    For the “full size” arm insignia, I know this battledress :



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Sure it is not a “best battledress” but a “real” battledress… that is perhaps the reason why the insignia is full ? I have also seen an arm badge found in Normandy, cut from the uniform, and it was full…

    I take advantage of my post to ask if somebody would have the nominaive listing of the army numbers fior the 24th lancers ?
