Polar Bear Patch

I found this patch in a box of my great uncle's world war 2 items. He served in in Europe from D-day on. Was wondering if anyone could help me identify this patch? Hopefully I can figure out how to add the photos

Thanks,

Jack

British 49th (West Riding) Division... Early design of this patch had the polar bear with head down which is the one worn by US First Marine Brigade in Iceland... they are often confused.

Thanks for the info. He had many different things from different countries in this box. This was one thing I was not sure of, as he was in the army and not marines, and he was never in Iceland. Hard to say where he picked it up.

Thanks,

Jack
