After the failure of the 1942 Dieppe raid it was obvious that new equipment was needed to breach beach defences and other fortifications. The Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers (AVRE) was designed to fill that need. Under the expertise of armoured warfare expert Percy Hobart, development began in 1943.

Percy Hobart
“To have moulded the best two British armoured divisions of the war was an outstanding achievement, but Hobart made it a “hat trick” by his subsequent training of the specialised 79th Armoured Division, the decisive factor on D-Day.”

79th Armoured Division
In March 1943, Hobart’s 79th Armoured was on the verge of being disbanded, but instead was invited by Chief of the Imperial General Staff, General Sir Alan Brooke, to instead convert the division into a unit of specialized armour. Reluctant at first, Hobart sought assurance that the unit would remain operational in combat. The unit was renamed the 79th (Experimental) Armoured Division Royal Engineers, with the badge of the unit a black bull’s head on a yellow triangle – proudly displayed on each vehicle.
