3rd Canadian Army Tank Brigade

Scarce WW2 formation patch of the 3rd Canadian Army Tank Brigade. The Formation Patch of the 3rd Canadian Army Tank Brigade was a black diamond bisected by a French-grey stripe, very similar to the 2nd Brigade formation patch.

The following regiments were attached to the 3rd Canadian Army Tank Brigade,  the 6th Canadian Armoured Regiment (1st Hussars), 10th Canadian Armoured Regiment (The Fort Garry Horse) and 27th Canadian Armoured Regiment (The Sherbrooke Fusiliers Regiment).  In July 1943 both the 2nd and 3rd Army Tank Brigades were inspected to select just one of them to remain on the order of battle, as a change in the order of battle of armoured divisions meant that only one armoured brigade would be required. Lieutenant General Harry Crerar, General Officer Commanding I Canadian Corps, selected the 2nd Brigade and units of the 3rd Brigade were reassigned to become the 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade.
