I'll see if I can enhance my photography skills and pass you a copy of the voided badge via the usual channels.

The 2nd Tank collar now joins the other I have, along with the cap badge that has been discussed on this forum in the past.

236 Bn Offrs Cap Badges

Hi Larry,

I have both Officer cap badge variants you are after, along with 3 other OR variants. I've probably got the collars too, but that would take some searching. I'll see what I can dig...

The oval badge is a pin-and-catch and having discussed at some length with a established subject matter expert in the CEF field I'm of the opinion it is an Offrs badge. However, it's a moot...

Bill,

Mea culpa :o! The 253rd is actually maker marked 'Kinnear & Desterre'. The 254th is not maker marked but does have the Hemsley style lugs (and the ones on my badge are original).

SALC affiliation with CEF (Forestry) units - that is my supposition.
