Default Mess wings

Hello,

I have found these Canadian wings, for Mess Dress I think. But I don't know who wear them. Thank you

Good day Anjou,

You are correct, these appear to be mess dress wings. They are the Pre-Unification style wings, worn up to 1968. The wings would be worn by any Corps or Regiment of the Canadian Army that had a scarlet/red jacket as part of their mess dress.
