It was formed from the 126th (East Lancashire) Brigade in 1941 and converted to the 11th Tank Brigade in 1942. It did not see active service as a unit, and spent the war in Great Britain, as part of the 42nd Armoured Division. The 11th Tank Brigade was disbanded on 23 November 1943.

Postwar[edit | edit source]
The 11th Armoured Brigade was recreated in the early 1970s, as part of 1st Armoured Division in Germany. In 1977, it was converted into "Task Force Bravo".
The brigade title and number was resurrected again in 1981. Until the early 1990s the brigade was part of the 4th Armoured Division. It seems to have been formed from the disbanding Task Force Golf, and the number may have been picked in memory of the previous 4th Infantry Division's 11th Infantry Brigade.
