Badge Identification

Recommended Posts

This is a photo of my Grandfather in WW2 in Castle Halwood in the New Forest.  At that time he was serving with 135 Mechanical Equipment Company he was a Plant Op - specifically a D6 bulldozer Driver.  I know the pictures aren't clear but if anyone can tell me what the sleeve insignia might be then I would be truly grateful

It would make it easier if you could post just the badge rather than all of the pictures.  From the image it could be the flash for 5th Corps, though that is probably completely wrong and after downloading the image and trying to enlarge it I am certain it is not.
