Title Tank Corps cap badge
Nationality British
Period c 1917-39
Sold

The Tank Corps was raised in 1917 and this badge was commonly in use until 1939, when a new badge was introduced in white metal, this being in gilding metal. The Tank Corps was the instrument of immediate tactical success on the Western Front, which broke the stalemate of the trenches and was a major contributing factor to the final victory.

It is of one-piece die-struck construction, with two lugs brazed to the edge of the reverse on each side. This is similar to the more normally encountered version with a slider, but there are manufacturer's variations in the design. The badge is made of gilding metal and retains its bright finish.
