7/11 Hussars, 5th CAD, HQ Brigade – Battle Dress


RARE Original 7th / 11th Hussars – HQ 5th Canadian Armoured Division battle dress tunic. The tunic features original period applied canvas insignia. Nicely maker marked, dated 1943 in size 15. There is a number written on the interior what can be an Army Number, A-601. The 7/11 shoulder title on the left sleeve is reapplied at some point. Very nice jacket with original applied insignia. The red coloured bar indicates 2nd Brigade-Headquarter. There are shadows of Corporal ranks what might have taken off when he went to HQ brigade (?)

The 7th /  11th Hussars embarked for the U.K. on 9 October 1941, and disbanded on 1 January 1943. The personnel from this unit were absorbed by Headquarters (HQ) 5th Canadian Armoured Brigade of the 5th Canadian Armoured Division.

Very rare combination!
