*** Onbekend insigne ***

Beste allemaal,

=> Kan er iemand het insigne identificeren onder de Belgium schoudertitel?

=> Jasje wordt te koop aangeboden op tweedehands, is dit het resultaat van huisvlijt of een Brits insigne van een eenheid waar ook Belgen in gediend hebben?

Alvast bedankt,

Nick

Hallo Nick

Ik vind op het net niet terug dat Belgen in het Britse VIII Corps hebben gediend. Hier wat ik vond :

World War II

Home Defence
The 8th Army Corps made at the beginning of World War II part of the Home Forces. It consisted of the:
3rd Infantry Division
48th (South Midland) Division
Northwest Europe
The 8th Army Corps fought from 1944 to 1945 along the Western Front and was part of the Second Army. From January 21 to November 27, 1944 it was under the command of Lieutenant-General Richard O’Connor. At the beginning of Operation Overlord the corps consisted of:
Guards Armoured Division (later transferred to 30th Army Corps )
11th Armoured Division (later transferred to 30th Army Corps )
15th (Scottish) Infantry Division (later placed at 12th Army Corps )
6th Guards Tank Brigade
8th Army Group, Royal Artillery 25th Field Regiment, RA
15th Medium Regiment, RA (disbanded in December 1944)
61 ( Caernarvon & Denbigh Yeomanry ) Medium Regiment, RA
63 Medium Regiment, RA
77th ( Duke of Lancaster’s Own Yeomanry ) Medium Regiment, RA
53 ( Bedfordshire Yeomanry ) Heavy Regiment, RA
Corps Troops: 2nd Household Cavalry Regiment
91st ( Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders ) Anti-Tank Regiment, RA
121st ( Leicestershire Regiment ) Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment, RA
10th Survey Regiment, RA
VIII Corps Troops Royal Engineers
VIII Corps Signals
The 8th Army Corps played an important role during Operation Epsom , Operation Jupiter , Operation Goodwood and Operation Bluecoat before being reduced in size and placed in reserve. The 8th Army Corps played during Operation Market Garden a supporting role and freed the Dutch places Deurne and Helmond and participated in Operation Constellation . The Corps participated in Operation Plunder and tasks later the river Elbe over and occupied the city Plon in Schleswig-Holstein.
