Default 254th Bn CEF Quinte's Own

Hi All,

Similar to my post on the 253rd Bn we have no images of the "solid" 254th Bn badge that is noted in Charlton. Charlton also does not list any officer's shoulder titles (nor OR's for that matter). If anyone has any of these badges or knows of the existence of such badges please let us know - and I know Larry would love to get images too!

Thanks, Ian.

Default Solid 254th and 253rd Bn cap badges

Ian,

I have both a solid 253rd and 254th Bn cap badge, both of which I had thought I had given to Larry some while back.

If that isn't the case then I'll get an image of one sort or another across to Larry for inclusion in the CEF Gallery.

Thanks Lovat.
Larry is immersed in images, and these may not have been catalogued.

Excellent, thanks Lovat. I'll check in with Larry and ask him to stop hoarding the images!

Default 253 & 254 Images

I plead "Not guilty"
I have checked, I save all emails from Lovat and I have a folder with all of the images he has so kindly shared with me. Can't find "Hide nor Hair" of either unit badge.?????? I may have lost them over time (I don't think so??) or I have stashed them in some weird place on the several terabytes of drives I have - but !! so far i can't find anything!!!!!

By the way - did you know that there a 3574 items in the Cross Inf Bn Book. I just finished doing the spreadsheet. I'm going away now to drink!!!!!!!!

Hey Larry - better have a couple - I'm still finding items that were never in Cross in the first place! I've got a few new images to upload to the cloud for you. Cheers, Ian.
