Hi Mike, thanks but I was saying the bronze collar is different and doesn't match other versions. The AFV school type is the bronze collars show in the Canadian badge register and that I showed...

Hi, I got this bronze collar badge described as AFV Training Center. My understanding is that they had a different design, as shown, did they have two designs or is it something else? The badge is a...

Hi, again thank you for all the replies. Would the 15/19th have anything to do with the sales team? That would tie them all together or maybe that's too easy. Thanks again and best wishes for the New...

Hi, thanks for responses but I was curious as to what the cog wheel and star/ sun burst could represent, the other pennant is presumably REME so I assume they are both REME related, thanks again, Mike

Hi Paul, the frosted silver finish is fairly modern, I think, maybe some one could say when it came into vogue? I thought it was in the 80's or maybe 90's, best wishes Mike
