Rare WW2 Special A Service Airbourne Armoured Unit Embroidered White on Dark Blue Cloth Shoulder Title
Three Special Service Companies, (later designated as Squadrons) were raised in July 1941 with the designation of A, B and C. They were raised from volunteers drawn from the cavalry regiments of the 2nd Armoured Brigade (The Queens Bays, 9th Royal Lancers and 10th Royal Hussars). The idea was to train the men in the use of glider borne light tanks which was under investigation at the time.
A Squadron was disbanded in 1942. B Squadron was used in the invasion of Madagascar in May 1942 and later went to India where it was absorbed by 146 Royal Armoured Corps. C Squadron was reformed in June 1942 as the Airborne Light Tank Squadron. It saw service on D Day as the 1st Airborne Light Tank Squadron allocated to the 6th Airborne Division.
The title comes in very good condition. Some traces of paste remaining to the reverse. Worn July 1941 to June 1942 only. Rare.
