The Desert Rats are one of the most well known and indeed iconic divisions of the British Army. Having seen distinguished action throughout the duration of WWII, the Desert Rats name and motto became a symbol of determination and courage in the face of adversity.

In his address to the 7th army division in Berlin, 1945, Sir Winston Churchill said:

'Dear Desert Rats!

It is not without emotion that I can express what I feel about the Desert Rats. May our glory ever shine! May your laurels never fade! May the memory of this glorious pilgrimage of war which you have made from Alamein, via the Baltic to Berlin, never die!...'
