The insignia of the British HQ Theatre Troops (commanding Artillery, Signals, Logitical, Intelligence and Medical Brigdes):

The Winged Lion is based on the insignia of the World War II era General Headquarters Home Forces, which today in stylized form is used by HQ Land Command. In the first draft of the design the Lion was placed on a dark blue cross in a red field based on the shield used by the 21st Army Group and post-WW II by The British Army of the Rhine. This was changed by the College of Arms in to a quarterly field. Source [url]http://www.army.mod.uk/[url][/url]
