The 10th Armoured Division fought at the Battles of Alam Halfa and El Alamein. It was disbanded on 15 June 1944 in Egypt. The divisional sign was a fox's mask, representing the hunting tradition of the formation's cavalry and Yeomanry units. 10th Armoured was also briefly active after the war ended in Libya in the 1950s, incorporating 25th Armoured Brigade,[4] but was disbanded in July 1957.[5] The 25th Armd Bde was formed in 1952 to provide an operational HQ for the troops in Libya. In May and June 1956 the brigade was hastily expanded to division status as 10th Armd Div, with the intention of invading Egypt from the west during the Suez Canal Crisis. Planning was halted when it was found that such an invasion was banned under the terms of Britain's treaty with Libya. The Armoured Brigade Signals Squadron was expanded to 10th Armd Div Signals in May-June 1956, based in Tripoli. It began to wind up in April 1957, and disbanded completely in September 1957.
