    I learned from the Wikipedia article about Tetley

    James Noel Tetley - Wikipedia

    That 51 RTR which was one of his regiments in 25 Army Tank Brigade had originally been 7 Leed Rifles which he had commanded.

    And the NIH had served under him in 34 Army Tank Brigade in the UK.

    Also that "He was the only TA officer of the RTR to command a brigade on active service during the Second World War."
