WW2 Hellenic Greek Armed Forces Theatre Made Sand Cast Cap Badge Military Cap Badge - Cast Brass and Enamel
Theatre made sand cast cap badge, damage to blue enamel to centre. One lug remaining, folded over. Still, a rare survivor of the exiled Greek forces operating in North Africa along side the Allied Forces. I have since discovered a similar badge in construction with an eagle below the coloured rondel, also sand cast as worn by the Greek air force operating in exile in North Africa. Thank you to Roy for the identification and responding to my badge identification challenge!
After the fall of Greece to the Axis powers in April–May 1941, elements of the Greek Armed Forces managed to escape to the British-controlled Middle East. There they were placed under the Greek government in exile, and continued the fight alongside the Allies until the liberation of Greece in October 1944. These are known in Greek history as the Greek Armed Forces in the Middle East. The 1st Greek Brigade was placed under British 50th Division, under whose command it participated in the Second Battle of El Alamein, before being transferred to the British 44th Division. The Brigade fought in the battle and the subsequent operations until 19 December, when it returned to Egypt. It suffered 89 dead and 228 wounded.
