Default Embroidered cap badges

How about a thread on embroidered badges? let's get started with this RCE Badge. The badge is attached to a Coloured Field Service Cap but does not conform with the usual 'flaming bomb' badge. It is possible that it is a Warrant Officer's badge as they were entitled to an Officer's cap but not the badge.

Here is another badge from a Coloured Field Service Cap. This RCAMC badge is not a nurse's issue as it is slightly larger then that worn by Nursing Sisters.

The engineer badge looks like one for the patrols uniform or dress blues which went through some genisis as far as accoutriments with OTTAWA offering badges and the units vetoing for thier own designs . The same thing happened in 1970 with the greens

I can't say who would have worn that RCE badge, but it's a lot nicer looking than the blue bomb.
Not all bullion badges were configured for CFSC's. The two corps badges pictured are on kakhi, specifically for wear on berets.
The only WW2 emboidered badge I'm aware of for wear by OR's is the SLI. Anybody know of others? These were in cotton thread, officers in bullion.

Great badges guys. These badges are seldom seen or discussed.
Doug is the SLI cotton embroidered badge for the CFSC or for the beret?

I Think Bill is right insofar as these badges are not discussed very much. Some very nice badges have been displayed thus far...

I included the nursing sisters larger badge that Clive was referring to..

More nice badges. Thanks Dwayne.
Senior officers' badges are an interesting anomally. There seems to be far more embroidered badges for those ranks than metal badges. One seldom sees metal badges for the rank of full colonel and above.

Hi Paul,
I am not sure what you mean? There was no separate RCE cap badge for wear with Patrols that I am aware of.
