Default Shallow water (SCUBA)Diver badge repro...

This guy's repro's are so bad they are laughable. Unfortunately, he is selling enough to make it enticing to do more copies. His choices for repro's are a bit odd as well. Most patches are quite common to begin with.

I wish there was a thread on modern Canadian Navy diver badges. I am particularly fond of the Canadian designs.

Hopefully someone can oblige you Jibba Jabba, unfortunately I cannot as I only collect RCN badges up to 1968, the year the RCN ceased to exist in that form.

But I do agree with you that the designs of the CAF(N) badges, both occupation & specialty, are very well done.

I still feel that no badge can top the RCN gold wire badges tho. To appreciate these you had to see an RCN Honour Guard & Band formed up for parade in their number ones, be it in blues or whites.

Many of our older members may recall viewing the Sunset Ceremony spectacle held each summer on Parliament hill back in the glory days of the RCN - the1950-60's period.
