Default Unknown Signals Badge.

Hello All,
I just bought this on a whim, can anyone tell me what it is, it's 55mm high approx 2 and 1/4 inches. Is it a Canadian arm badge? or something else.
Thanks,
Phil.

In the Canadian Forces, prior to unification, this insignia was worn above the 3 chevrons for those who held the rank of Sergeant. It's not a collar badge. Cheers,

Walt

That's interesting, I didn't know a metal SNCO arm badge existed, was it worn on tropicals?
