    Emblem of 23rd Armoured Brigade. My father was in the Brigade's REME workshops in 1994 and 1945 visiting Egypt, Palestine and Greece.

    RRTB 145 Fd Regt (Berkshire Yeomanry) RA

    Mine is the "White Horse" in Berkshire. This was adopted as the insignia for the Berkshire Yeomanry with which my Dad served in WW2, first with 145 Fd Regt (Berkshire Yeomanry) RA and subsequently 178 Fd Regt Berkshire Yeomanry RA when he and the remaining members of 145 regt were sent to Java. He arrived there in Dec 1945 and was there for the next 6-8 months if memory serves me.

    Mine, I think is obvious, the badge of the Royal Regiment of Artillery. Why? It was worn by both my Dad and my Uncle during WW2 and by myself from 1962 to 1981 and again from 1988 to 1991 when I joined the Home Service Force attached to 103 Regt RA(TA).
