Canadian Badge

Your badge is from THE ROYAL CANADIAN ENGINEERS. Note the "VI" in the middle, it is for George VI. The badge can then be dated 1937 to1952.

Thanks Chris. No idea of the story behind it - but as a guess - 1Div Signals. the dates and locations are all right for 1Div and since they are the only ones to use that badge - - maybe!!!

Daniel Mazeas; page 8; MS.5 - Canadian Militia Badges Pre- 1914. These are Militia - General Service Collar Badges. Many refer to this pattern as the "Boar War" Gen Svc badge.

Greetings

Jean_Paul - Hello!

Was it you that did the display for The Vimy Ridge 90th in the City Hall; Arras?

2 CMR BCH

I had seen that badge in my book. It is similar but it is not near the same. Different size plus the naming on the badge is completely different. I like your slouch hat idea.

CPF "Service At The Front"

The undated badge is the first in the series- so in 1914. By the way if the badge has an "X" at the start of the serial number it is a Birks badge

Military School/School of Musketry Badge

Thanks for the reference. With the Victorian Crown, I suspect it was in use during the 1800's. I have never seen any reference to this badge.
