Excellent quality reproduction insignia for the Desert Rats - the 7th Armoured Division. This insignia has been reproduced specifically for Hornbeam Militaria and was created using an original example, from which we have copied the size, material and colouring. This particular recreation is hand sewn and has been copied from a hand sewn example, using a technique known as 'slice stitching'. Note it has been created with a rough edge, not like some of the lower quality reproductions on the market that have a thickened border which was not present on the originals.
The hand stitched has been done using red and white cotton onto a black felt background.
We have these available with both right and left facing rats, as the rat should always be facing forwards, regardless of the arm it is worn on. This listing is for a pair, one of each style.
Measures 71mm x 56mm. Perfect for re-enactment, shadow boxes or framed tributes.
