The History of the British 4th and 7th Armoured Brigades

TAC Sign of 4th Amoured Brigade, the Black Rats, from 1943 to 1945

TAC Sign of 7th Amoured Brigade, the Green Jerboa, from 1942 to 1945

"The Black Rats and Green Jerboa"

 

 

 

This website is dedicated to all those who served in these units and proudly wore the Black and Green Jerboa shoulder flashes, after leaving the 7th Armoured Division. It is an extension to the main 7th Armoured Division website, to provide a point of reference for those who might be interested in the history of these Brigades after they left the Desert Rats and the various regiments that served in the and the many actions they fought.

As far as I know the information is as accurate as possible, but I welcome any corrections or amendments, along with any information that may be useful to the site. As with the 7th Armoured Division website, this site does not seek to glorify war, but rather to record the history and events of what are some of the most famous organisations that served in the British Army.

The site is divided into the following areas, which may contain other several pages. The Brigade and Division Signs help identify with formations each link is associated with and there are links to the main 7th Armoured Division website, too, to avoid unnecessary duplication.
