This is a good example of shoulder title to the 8th Reconnaissance Regiment (14th Canadian Hussars)

This is a good example of shoulder title to the 8th Reconnaissance Regiment (14th Canadian Hussars)

This is a perfect example of a un-issued shoulder title to the Canadian 8th Reconnaissance Regiment (14th Canadian Hussars). The 8th Reconnaissance Regiment (14th Canadian Hussars), commonly abbreviated to 8 Recce, VIII Recce or (within the British Army) 8 Canadian Recce, was the reconnaissance arm of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division during World War II. 8 Recce spent the first three years of its existence involved in training and coastal defence duties in southern England. It was not involved in the ill-fated Dieppe Raid on August 19, 1942, and thus avoided the heavy losses suffered that day by many other units of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division. The regiment landed with its division in Normandy on July 6, 1944, one month after D-Day, and first entered combat as infantry in the on-going Battle of Normandy. 8 Recce saw heavy action through to the end of the war including the costly Battle of the Scheldt, the liberation of the Netherlands and the invasion of Germany. 8 Recce's last two major engagements were the Battle of Groningen over April 13–16 and the Battle of Oldenburg, in Germany, over April 27 to May 4. This example which is in a perfect and un-issued condition will do great in any Canadian collection. Hard to up grade.
