The 51st (Highland) Infantry Division was nicknamed the "Highway Decorators" in reference to the 'HD' insignia which adorned road signs along their axis of advance. The members were immensely proud of their Divisional sign which they portrayed at every opportunity. (Sfax, Tunisia, april 1943)

That's not a V-victory sign, it is the British version of "up yours". V-victory is with the palm facing the other way. Either way, the chap seems perfectly happy with insulting the Jerries.
