Default Not Sure About This Medic Badge

I just received a couple of badges and although I also recently got two of the RCAMC title, they came as a lot. I basically wanted the little winged Medic badge. However, I am not sure what it is, but assume it is some kind of Aeromedical Evacuation. And, possibly civilian rather than military??? It's a nice little badge and not very big. being 40 MM across. The color looks military - yellow on an olive green, and not yellow on black as it looks in the pictures..





Also, can someone advise the time frame that the RCAMC title was worn? I've seen it listed from WW2 to current times.

Thank you in advance,

Terry

Default Re: Small Medical Badge

Good day Terry,

The small medical badge at the bottom of your photo is for the Royal Canadian Army Cadets qualification, Hospital Attendant Course. I am not sure what training that a Cadet would have to do to qualify for this badge or if it is even a current qualification, as some qualifications and their badges have been removed from the Cadet system.

Ian
