Gentlemen
I want to share this nice collar, it’s not marked but it looks like Birks manufacturing!
Kind regards Chay

Hello Tweed, thank you for the collar.

Voici le cap badge (Here is the cap badge) I like it.....I was very happy to find it.

These guys have worked a lot near my home to prepare the battle of Vimy around the month of April1917: roads, railways etc ....

Sorry Chay.
I've forgotten to say that it is a pleasure to discuss with a "Canadian badges" Collector.

Default Greetings

Jean_Paul - Hello!

Was it you that did the display for The Vimy Ridge 90th in the City Hall; Arras?
If it was, I think I met you then.

Larry

Dans la zone supérieure, entrez le nom d'utilisateur que vous souhaitez envoyer. Tapez votre message et appuyez sur "submit message".

J'espère que cela fait du sens, mon français n'est pas bon!

Good evening everyone,
Several answers to make:

1) for LLWill: I did not organize this exhibition in Arras. There are some collectors of Canadian militaria in the Pas de Calais and the Somme, memory and centenary oblige.

2) for Chipper, thanks for your instructions. Your French is certainly better than my English!

3) For Tweed: I have seen your cap badge of the 44th CEF Battalion.
Here is mine.
I am looking to find the cap badges of the 4 Canadian divisions present at Vimy in April 1917. It's a little crazy.

Good night
Jean Paul
