Hello Bill,

Thank you for your quick response and prompt activation of my account!

Are the J.R. Gaunt manufactured 1st Hussars cap badges not produced in England? If this is the case, why is it so hard to believe that other British materiel would have made its way into Canadian hands?

My primary area of interest is USGI militaria, and I am familiar with many British made field gear items being used by U.S. Forces, so why would the Canadians not also use British kit from time-to-time?

Based on what I can tell the marking stamped inside is:

W /|\ D

My intent is not to refute your knowledge, I'm just trying to learn through asking questions.
