Default Royal Flying Corps Badge WW1 CEF Canadian made by Hemsleys

I received this badge recently with a lot of 4 RFC badges and was surprised to find what I believe to be a G.F. Hemsleys made badge. The distinct pickled finish on copper with the Hemsley pattern lugs lead me to believe this pattern was made by that manufacturer. A very beautifully made example, I had seen Canadian badges made by Roden Bros but not one to this maker. Thought it would be worth showing on the forum.

A really lovely and very scarce example.
