im at my witts end and really need your help.
I've looked into all the books i currently have about the british units of 1940+ and couldn't find anything.
Im trying to find the Unit to which this Vickers Mk.VI AA belonged.
Especially the arm of service on the left (171) and the div. sign (two triangles point towards each other) + the colors of both decals.
If anyone could help me or point me into the right direction i would be really happy.

Have a look at http://www.petergh.f2s.com/flashes.html. It's a great resource. A quick check seems to indicate either 25th Tank Brigade or if later, 25th Armoured Engineer Brigade.

The first decal would suggest that its a Royal Artillery unit and maybe one (the 2 triangles) from an Armoured Brigade, with the circular encased 7 maybe a tactical sign though pre 1945 as they had been standardised into different coloured squares, Also doubtful a Vickers would have been in front-line service then, unless maybe serving in a AGRA for HQ defence be it in NW Europe or the ME etc.
