Updates – 12/05/21

New information has recently come to light regarding the AoS markings of both the 4th and the 33rd Armoured Brigades. Specifically, that the 4th use green/blue markings rather than the standard red, and that the generally-accepted numbers used by the 33rd after their reorganisation in August/September 1944 are in fact all wrong.

As such, I’ve updated both the AoS diagrams and the Timeline for Independent Brigades.

I am grateful to James McCragg for bringing the issue of the 33rd to my attention, and to Michel Sabarly of WW2Talk for pointing me towards Dan Taylor’s thread about the 4th.

Additionally, I’ve picked up a copy of Mark Bevis’ British and Commonwealth Armies Order of Battle, and so with a bit of work will hopefully be able to further add to the timeline diagrams, to show the majority vehicle types used by different units as the war progressed.

Fingers crossed anyway…
