    I've just returned from my first trip to TNA for six months and I came across this in a 44 Recce WD. A cash prize to whoever can name all them all. The middle six on the top row are Corps signs - what is the black and white one with what looks like a bull? I can hazard a guess but anyone know for sure?

    I'll say it before anyone else does.

    6th Infantry Division renumbered to 70th Inf Div in 1941.

    Tony listed them all but edited his post after I replied.

    I'm fairly sure I have a copy where the original owner noted all the units but can't seem to find it - in the more common 2nd Army version it seems to have been the done thing to write them on

    Still kept hold of my list but, as I said, didn't want to spoil the fun. At the end of this we could produce a definitive list. By the way:

    I wonder if Ron has the key, can't see that he posted it?

    As no one else has posted and in order to bring everything together, this is my contribution, with correction as per Owen #4, happy to amend if any other errors.
