I did see a cap badge with the silver overlay maker marked Hemsley. Would that be immediately after WW1? Any idea when Hemsley stopped making badges? I have only ever seen CEF badges by Hemsley.

I am with Mike. Looks British made with that style of thread and the brown paper backing. I have seen plenty of Brit made wings on RCAF tunics and Canadian made wings on RAF tunics.

British version of no C and no red in crown. The RAF wing I have seen on several tunics made by Austin Reed. The RCAF I have also seen on Austin Reed. This pair from my collection.

Yes original. I am certain it's a Canadian made pattern awarded to RAF pilots on wings parade. Graduation day of a BCATP pilot.
