The British 79th Armoured Division has allready been mentioned. It supported the Brittish and Canadian Forces who landed at Sword, Juno and Gold Beaches. So I add the main units who landed here.

Carrying out a role similar to the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions where the British 6th Airborne Division (including a Canadian Airborne Battalion).

50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division. This was a Territorial Army (a Force a bit like the Army National Guard) Division recruited in the Area between the Rivers Tyne and Tees henche the TT.

 

8th Armoured Brigade. I have no picture of this Brigade’s insignia. But a discription on a golden yellow circle a Fox’s Mask in brown and black.

Nos 41 (Royal Marines) Commando (a Commando is a Unit of roughly Battalion strength) and 45 (RM) Commando landed at Sword, No 46 (RM) Commando at Juno and No 47 (RM) Commando at Gold.

 

Thus ending my look at the British and Canadian part of the D-day landings.
