I am painting some carriers and light tanks for a friend and it would be nice to have the appropriate brigade and divisional markings on them. They will be 1/72 models.

Fife & Forfar Yeomanry and the 1st East Riding Yeomanry both part of the 1st Light Armoured Reconnaissance Brigade.

Which company (UK preferred) can supply decals for them?

Hi Jim,
All units of 1st and 2nd Light Armoured Reconnaissance Brigades carried a brigade marking of a "white number 2 on a black square".

The unit marking for the Fife & Forfar Yeomanry was a "white stags head on a green/khaki square. I cannot find the unit marking for the 1st East Riding Yeomanry (it may not have had one?).

Also it was common for all BEF armour to to have a small identifying white square on the front, back and sides. It served a similar purpose to the German cross or allies white star in 1944.

Thanks for that Byron1.
