Sorting Mail

I don’t know much about the Canadian Postal Corps, but it would appear that each branch had their own offices. Everyone seems to be members of the RCAF.

Hi Jerry, my guess was based on the Labour Corps being pressed into combat as infantry during the German offensives of 1918 and not knowing the extent of the disability.

CB, I don't know if it makes any difference, but the badge came from the U.K about eight years ago.

Thanks for the reply Luke H.
