Default Church Boys Brigade - Toronto

In my research I came across the Church Boys Brigade mainly centred around Toronto. This was an Anglican Brigade similar to the Church Lads Brigade. It was not connected to William Smith's Boys Brigade.

Members wore a lapel badge that was either triangular or featured a triangle and contained the letters SPQR. On their caps they wore a fan shaped badge that was red, white and blue.

Would any of the Canadian members of the Forum have images of these badges?
