Not even one I would like to have as a hole filler, and most certainly nothing like my 9th Bn Offrs that is pictured in the CEF Gallery.

Larry,

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

Attached, I hope, are the promised 5 images of the 236th Bn. I'll send what I hope are better images to Larry for inclusion either in the CEF Project and/or Book of the same name.

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...

Bill,

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...

A Few Recent Additions

Attached are a few recent (and not so recent) additions. The 253rd and 254th non-voided have already been seen, along with the Offr's 244th. These are far better photos of these badges though!

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.

I have both a solid 253rd and 254th Bn cap badge, both of which I had thought I had given to Larry some while back.

If that isn't the case then I'll get an image of one sort or another...
