Phillip,

Thanks for your reply. I think you're certainly on to something here. The insignia appears to match the Queen's one.

Mystery Canadian Badge by Birks-Ellis

Hello all,

This badge was included in a sizable lot of militaria and despite considerable searching online, and in my reference library, I'm completely stumped.

Paul,

Thanks for your posts. Yes, I'm familiar with jewellers making officers' badges as well as sweethearts and the like. However, this particular jeweller seems to have been rather a minor...

Hello all,

In going through my badges I've noticed one (Black Watch Officer/SNCO) that is nicely made and has a small tablet on the back which reads: "Wilson & Sharp Edinburgh". I haven't been...

Roy,

Happy to "help". I've seen a few different patterns of Imperial badges come with CEF stuff, from deluxe solid silver to an "el-cheapo" (but very interesting) single piece badge that was...

Gents,

Not to muddy the waters, but officers of the CEF 42nd and 73rd battalions also wore British/Scottish Black Watch officers' badges. I have had sets of medals that came with various examples...

What are these? Strange shoulder titles.

Hello all,

These came with some WWI items, but I've been unable to positively ID them. I'm not that well versed in cloth. I can't find a match to WWII titles, and WWI cloth seems to be limited...

Bill,

Interesting. I'll be sure to let you know if I spot anything similar in the future.

On another note, I got some "Canada" titles recently that I can't positively identify, and am stumped...

Bill,

I can't say I've ever seen this practice with any Black Watch of Canada epaulets.

What order of dress are these tartan epaulets purported to be from?

Cheers,

As Phillip points out the gold(en) wire badges are a purchase item, usually worn on the beret. I don't know of an "issued" cloth badge. NCMs serving within JAG/AJAG retain their own branch badges...

I agree with Greg that this would be a Brooker 105-11-60 type officer's badge. Very nice to see, these don't show up very frequently.

Also, I am away from my references but pretty sure that the...
