Description
In 1930, a squadron of armoured cars was formed in Brest. Other squadrons were added & reformed into the 4th Armoured Squadron. In 1934, the 4th Armoured Sqn. was joined with the 9th Motor Sqn & renamed the 4th Armoured Battalion. On July 29 1938, the unit was part of the 3rd Tank Group stationed in Brest & in 1939 the Battalion was mobilised. The design of the badge was approved on June 30, 1936. The cross is based on the Order of the Virtuti Militari & in the centre a 17th century Polish Cavalry helmet, on the lower arm of the cross, the gold digit of the '4 panc' regiment. Officers badges were enamelled and other ranks (which this badge is ) were painted black
