I am not sure why the RCH badges would be made by Gaunt in the UK. The example shown is an other ranks badge and appears to be a good quality striking. I wonder if the regiment ran short of badges and ordered a supply from the UK?

I have "QC" Canadian Badges in my collection that were made by Gaunt.
Rocky Mountain Rangers
Royal Winnipeg Rifles
Fort Garry Horse
8th Canadian Hussars

The RCR can be added to the list.
My question is more about a contradiction between policy and procurement. There was a "buy Canadian" policy in effect for system procurements and if the badges were made by Gaunt, were they regimental kit shop purchases?

I have QC officers' badges made by Gaunt. I wonder if Gaunt made the ORs' badges on their own initiative for some reason.

A qc Fusiliers Mont Royal badge is currently being offered on ebay with a stamped slider. It is a pattern that I have not seen previously.

Hi, I picked up this badge over the week-end. The question is, was it usual to have sliders on what I assume is an officer's badge also if possible a time for use of this badge, thanks in advance Mike

Hi Mike, sliders were used on officers' badges. More unusual to have the J R Gaunt marking.

Hi Bill, thank you for the reply, any idea on the time frame? best wishes and thanks again, Mike

The Royal Canadian Hussars were formed in 1958 by the amalgamation of the 6 Duke of Connaught's Royal Canadian Hussars and the 17th Duke of Yorks Royal Canadian Hussars. They are still an active unit in the Canadian militia today.
