Appears to be a cast badge. The detail has been polished off of the tank, with the exception of the gun sponson.

Did a bit more checking. Both badges are later authorization. The U of A badge is the 1937 issue, and the Bishop's College badge is the pattern authorized in 1926.

My understanding re the 4 CMR is that the 4 CMRR badge was the first issue and the second issue was the 4 CMR. The CMR pattern is more difficult to find.
