    Hi to all!
    This is my first post. I'm from Slovenia, very close to Italian border. When I visited relative old house I find this road sign. Need help identify it. For a background you can see this:
    Morgan Line - Wikipedia
    The mentioned house was in zone A.
    Any help appreciated.

    Looks like directional signs for the 'B' Echelon and possibly Rear HQ for the senior infantry brigade in a British infantry division. I can't pin down the blue and red cross on a white field though, so I'm not sure which division it was.One of our British friends probably will identify it.

    Kind of looks like this, although the bars are turned.

    This is the emblem of the 10th Indian Division. I could be wrong, but this unit did fight in northern Italy.

    Yep, 10th Indian Division. Probably 10th Indian Infantry Brigade.

    They ended the war in and around Trieste on security detail. That would put them in the right area.
