Default CEF Book Project.

Larry Will, Ian Candy, Don Fair, and me have been working on a new CEF badge reference for a couple of years. We have been slowly but surely making progress on the infantry volume. This project will catalogue the known varieties of each unit's badges, and for the first time, explain the design and the significance of the design. Attached is a sample page. More details about the badges (makers, lugs and other details) are to be included in some manner. The format of the page is pre-pub and we are still thinking about the final page layout. Comments welcome.

As a newcomer to Canadian badges, I think this will sell like hot-cakes. It's just what I, as a new collector, needs. I think it will also appeal to established collectors as well; the colour pictures are excellent and so much better than line drawings.

Can't wait.

Cheers, Tim

Great stuff, Bill. If only someone would do that for British badges too.

Good seeing you at the Ottawa show last Sunday.

David

Kind regards

Hi Dan, No we won't be including sweethearts. Two issues. First a space limitation. An awful lot of stuff just with the insignia. Second, sweethearts come in endless variations, and it would be nigh impossible to catalogue them all.

Default Picture 4

Hello Bill,
Excellent research work carried out by yourself, Larry Will, Ian Candy and Don Fair on the subject of CEF infantry badges. I look forward to purchasing a copy of the book when it becomes available for sale and that's from someone who's not a CEF badge collector. I noticed a slight pictorial movement on picture 4, nonetheless great pictures and text. I look forward to the completed book
Cheers,
Invest

Default CEF Book Project - Picture 4

Picture 4 is a miss-strike, not movement of the badge/camera during the image taking.
