Default Perth Regiment Cap Badge questions

I wonder if someone can help me learn more about this cap badge and these buttons. Admittedly, until yesterday when I discovered them in a jar of old buttons that I bought at a garage sale, I had no idea what the badge was. Iíve read every post on this site about The Perth Regiment but havenít seen a reference to this type of badge. From the perthregiment.org website Iíve learned that it may be whatís called a 1st pattern cap badge. Iíd really like to get an idea of their age, value and any other information known about them.

Thanks for your time!

Hi pduskocy, Welcome to the Forum.
There is a similar badge in the 1920-1950 king's crown gallery. http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/can...stry/index.htm
Not sure about the size of the badge, it may be a collar.

Thanks for the welcome! Sorry, I should have thought to include the measurements... It measures about 1 3/4 inches vertically and 1 1/2 inches horizontally. I bought them in Stratford, Ontario if that also helps. ~Pam

with the dimentions quoted, 1 3/4 X 1 1/2, to me would indicate a Cap badge. It appears to be the pattern worn in World War Two. The Regiment was raised in Stratford Ontario.

Hi, Cliff is right, the measurements would indicate a cap badge.

Hi, Bill. I believe that I’ve become quite fascinated with my little find. I’m going to see if I can find some pictures of the Regiment, who was in it; that sort of thing. Cliff provided very valuable information and I want to dig in a little and see what else I can learn… It’s like I’ve uncovered a little piece of history that I’m looking forward to learning all I can about. My grandfather was also in the war and my mom just told me that she has a trunk full of his war things that have been in her attic for decades… I’m excited to take a peek! He wasn’t in the Perth Regiment; I’m not sure who he was with.

Hmmm, sounds like you have been infected with a terrible disease, ....faleristicititis.
I think you have been to this site, http://www.perthregiment.org/. One of the Forum members, Dwayne Hordij, is a major author for the site, and he has a vast knowlege of the Perths.
