WE of an HQ Army Tank Brigade did not authorize Fighting, Recce and Admin Groups as for an Armoured Brigade owing to its different employment - i.e. close infantry support. The equipment of the HQ in armoured fighting vehicles, apart from one armoured command vehicle, varied in kind and number according to circmstances (III/1931/8A/3 wef 4 October 1939). The WE of an Army Tank Battalion was the same as in 1938 (III/1931/33A/2 wef 13 April 1938).
