Early style Tac Signs have been placed alongside AoS where they have been positively identified as being used by that unit. See the Early Tac Signs page for an explanation of this system.

Although this Corps used different Arm of Service numbers to the other two Corps, there is some evidence that they had started to conform with the other Corps sometime after 11 April 1940. This process almost certainly stopped when the Corps went into action on 10 May. A photo shows an abandoned  Quad of 88 Field carrying the AoS number 9 and photos of other arms vehicles show a change to the “standard” number system.
