Default CANADA Armoured ?

I am wondering about the Canada Armoured badge shown in the attached pic.

Any info is appreciated.

This is the king's crown badge for the Canadian Armoured Corps, circa 1940 until 1945. Not sure what else you want to know?

Thanks Bill,

I found another reference that lists it as the "Canadian Armoured Fighting Vehicle Training Center".

EDIT: On closer inspection, the Training badge has a different "Tank" depicted.

Default CAFVTC badge

Crappy scan, but the actual Fighting Vehicles Training Centre badge is on left. Canadian Armoured Corps on right.

Thanks David.

Yes, there are significant differences between the 2.

David:
Is there any difference in the value of the two? I've had both pass through my hands over the years but never realized the difference.
Thanks,
Hugh

The Canadian Armoured Corps badge (right in my prev. post's pic.) is as common as dishwater and is a $10 badge.

The Fighting Vehicles Training Centre badge (left badge in my pic.), however, is easily a $100+ plus badge these days. Last one I saw sell on EBay was $121 CDN plus shipping, and that was some time ago.
