Default VARIETY of Sherbrooke Fusilier Regt Shoulder Flashes

Hello All,
Here is a variey of Cloth / Canvas Shoulder Titles to the Sherbrooke Fusillier Regiment. To the best of my knowledge, all are legitimate (some authorized, some not). I would greatly welcome any of your opinions as to the chronological date(s) of manufacture of these Shoulder Flashes and, also, any other comments/opinions that you may have. Many thanks.
Duncan

Hi Duncan, Good start on your accumulation of Sherbrooke Fusilier cloth titles. The top three are the starch back (or also called the glue back). They were not available until the late spring or early summer of 1945. The printed title design was approved in May of 1944, with delivery sometime in June or July 1944. The next title down, with the white fuzzy stuff around the lettering is a repro, maybe made for one of the reunions. That leaves the last three, which may have been regimentally procured or private purchase. The poor quality of the bottom two poses an interesting question. Why would any regiment take these into wear? They are cheap and the quality reflects back on the wearer. Many corps / regiments exist in this style of embroidery, but I have never seen one in photo evidence or in wear on a tunic. The third from the bottom may have been one worn between the summer of 1943 and the issue of printed titles, or it may be one acquired through private purchase.
And, you are still looking for the 27 Armoured Regiment title?

Hi Andrew, There are images in the Canadian Gallery. The link is at the top right of each page. The Sher Fus were disbanded after the SWW. The Sherbrooke Regiment carried on, and then amalgamated with the 7/11th Hussars to form the Sherbrooke Hussars. http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/can...ke_hussars.htm

Hi Bill. Thank you for your input: GREAT STUFF!!! The "repo" title (which DOES NOT have "Canada" on it) came from the estate of a former SFR; which is why I have included it in this grouping. I have also sent you a PRIVATE MESSAGE, Bill.

Hi Andrew. You may want to have a look at this "flowchart"
http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/for...ictureid=93402 On the left, as viewed, near the bottom you will see the SFRs reverting back to the Sherbrooke Regiment (and FUS de SHER). Hope this helps.
