A very scarce Brigade history in its original form, the large format and tightly typeset pages pack much useful information. The 34th Armoured Brigade was formed in 1941 as the 34th Army Tank Brigade and subsequently redesignated as the 34th Tank Brigade in February 1945. It then became part of the 79th Armoured Division. Equipped with Churchill tanks it provided close support for infantry assaults. The Brigade served in both the First Canadian Army and the British Second Army. It was disbanded in early 1946. Losses totalled 682 killed & wounded, with 272 tank losses of which 85 ‘brewed up’. Complete with Orders of Battle and awards roll.
