Default Boer war Canada titles

Mazeas shows these as correct for the Boer war/militia era Canada titles. I thought the type with the wavy scroll was correct, they match the Canada script on the cap badge.

The CANADA shoulder tablets were taken into wear circa the time of the Boer War. The wavy pattern were more associated with the overseas contingent, but iiuc, they were a variation of the titles.

Good day Mike, while looking for somthing else, I found this from a J.R.Gaunt catalogue from probably just post Boer war period/very early Edwardian period, showing your shoulder title.From Rob Miller's album.
