Default RCA bullion wire officer's badge Airborne.

The Royal Canadian Artillery provided an element for the now disbanded Special Service Force. Airborne qualified, the officers of the airborne artillery element wore a bullion wire beret badge with the maroon backing.

Default Engineers

The Engineers (2 CER) also had an example. Wire bullion badges were not only authorized for Officers, but also CWOs.
