Default Canadian Artillery - TIPTAFT

Hi All
I just picked up this badge with a TIPTAFT Birmingham maker mark. Is this unusual or common, and what era would it be?
I might move it on if it is worth it.
Thanks, cheers,
Alex

A very nice badge Alex. I’ve always thought of these as WW1. The same mark is also found on North Stafford 1916 all GM issue amongst others.

Your marked example is reasonably scarce and so a good find.

Alex,
As Luke says. The CANADA top banner was replaced in 1923 by UBIQUE and Tiptaft was one of several makers of these badges. British makers usually added sliders whilst Canadian makers preferred loops or tangs (blades).

Canadian badges are far more often maker marked on both their bodies and/or sliders if fitted.

regards

My understanding is that is also a WW1 badge.

The link below is to a website article in which it is listed:

A great article by Chris Brooker complimented the superb Charlton Standard Catalogue.

Thanks for showing

A bit of clarification. The Canadian permanent army artillery had been designated the Royal Canadian Artillery, with three components, Horse Artillery, garrison artillery and field artillery. There were no permanent field batteries at the outbreak of the FWW. The Garrison and RCHA were mobilized, and the militia mobilized batteries for the Canadian Field Artillery. The militia components were not granted the Royal designation. Post war, the regular component of the RCA were granted the UBIQUE honour and had the new cap badges, almost identical to the British Royal Artillery badge authorized. It was taken into wear circa 1927 for ONLY the permanent elements of the artillery. The militia batteries continued to wear the Canada banner badges until they were granted the Royal designation in 1935. At that time they were also granted the right to wear the UBIQUE badge. Prior to that they had continued to wear the CANADA banner badge.
