Hi Mike,
do you have a reference book with a photo of the slouch hat badge as I always thought that the badge you are showing was it and the shoulder title was a simple CS?
I'm very interested to see the pic if you can show it.
thanks
Glenn.

Hi Glen.....

There was no slouch hat badge, they sometimes wore a Black Ostrich feather in their cap..... The Canadian Scouts was a shoulder badge but sometimes worn on the slouch hat though not officially..... The S over C was a collar badge again worn unofficially on the slouch hat.....

The new book on the Canadian Scouts, a Regimental History, which will be coming out towards the end of June early July has a number of photos of members wearing the badges as described..... Some are wearing the CS collars and some the standard Boer War Canadian Maple Leaf as a collar..... I tried to copy the photo but they were not of great quality, will be better in the book..... I am not primarily a badge collector but a Boer War collector who just happens to have the badges to match the medals and units in his collection.....

Mike
