British 2nd Army WWII Trench Art Shield - Click for the bigger picture

British 2nd Army WWII Trench Art Shield

The British Second Army was a field army of the British Army active during both World War I and World War II. During the Second World War the 2nd Army was the core element in the British contribution in the D-Day landings in Normandy and subsequent advance across Northwest European under General Eisenhower's SHAEF. The shield appears to be hand made and is carved from wood. It features in relief a crusader's sword superimposed on a white shield and blue cross. To the top right is the number 505 whilst to bottom left is a winged 'T', again carved in relief. To the bottom right is a list of the areas the 2nd Army operated in during WWII:France, Belgium, Holland and Germany and the dates 1939-1945. The back carries a brass wall mount bracket. The original paint is still bright but with some age wear. This item exudes period charm but is somewhat outside of our area of expertise so if any visitors to the site can explain any of the details we have missed please get in touch and we will add to our description. Measures 9.5"x6.25" (24 cm x 16 cm)
