The CEF Training Batteries used numerals 1-5 and letters A - D overlaid on the gun.

However they were on CANADA banner badges and certainly not on the 1917 reinforced RA badge like that one.

Fantasy.

Mind your P's and Q's sir!............I take it that the "P" might stand for "Punked"?

There were actually 9 numbered training batteries and the four alpha designated ones. But as indicated above, there was no "P" and the training battery badges were based on the CFA cap badge with the CANADA banner.
