This is a nice British made canvas/printed shoulder title to 'Fort Garry Horse'. The shoulder title is in unissued condition, shows some glue traces on the backside.
The Fort Garry Horse was a tank regimen and part of the 2nd Canadian Brigade who landed with their tanks on D-day June 6th 1944.
Very hard to find printed shoulder title!
The Fort Garry Horse, 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade.
Mobilized for the Second World War in 1939, the regiment was converted from cavalry to armour in 1940 and was dispatched overseas in 1941.
The Fort Garry Horse landed on D-Day June 6 1944 at Bernières-sur-Mer. They fought at Rots in the Mue Valley on June 11 1944, and later played a key role in the capture of Carpiquet airfield on the outskirts of Caen. This was followed by vicious fighting on Verrières Ridge, the night attack - Operation Totalize - and the 'Mad Charge' during Operation Tractable.
Following the Normandy campaign, the regiment fought in Belgium, Holland and Germany.
