#BS146 RCASC South Alberta Regiment Duffel Bag
Original WWII Canadian Royal Canadian Army Service Corps (RCASC), 4th Armoured Division, South Alberta Regiment, personalized duffel bag of Trooper "S. Gillies".  The South Alberta Regiment was the Armoured Recce Regiment of the 4th Armoured Division, and were deployed to Northern France in June 1944 taking part in the later battles of the invasion of Normandy including Operation Totalize, closing the Falaise pocket, and Operation Tractable. They later participated in the liberation of the Netherlands and the Battle of the Scheldt.  In January 1945 they took part in the battle for the Kapelsche Veer and spent the last  weeks of the war in Northern Germany. Breakdown of markings on the duffel: the green square with maple leaf is the formation sign of 4th Armoured Division, below it the square with "45" represents the South Alberta Regiment, and Trooper Gillies has taken some artistic license by proudly placing it over top of the RCASC coloured unit sign of red and green. The Regimental Number "M50860" was assigned to No 13 District Depot (Alberta). We have not done any further research, but this has the potential to be an exciting research project for the next owner.  One of the coolest duffel bags we've handled so far! $750
