After combing through LAC documents for the last several years, it is interesting to note that there were badges authorized for 1st Tank Bn. But authorizations for anything else Tank ways is not recorded. It should also be noted that the Canadian Tank Corps was organized making it likely that the badges above were made for the cadre.

Were you the fellow who showed these to me at the Calgary show? You bought some badges off me at my table.

Is there a story behind why the tank isn't level on these badges, but instead seems to be falling into a hole?
