Default 1 ceu

Scully's lists this badge in their sales catalogue. I was under the impression that 1 CEU wore the Canadian Engineers badge, and not an unique badge?

Bill, it looks like it's a badge to be mounted on a plaque of some kind.

Thanks Jo. Some strange things have happened with badges since the 1980's. Sometimes stuff like this gets issued.

A couple more oddities from Scully's catalogue. The first one, can someone explain the significance of the yellow, green, 2 purple(?) hackles. Never saw any canadian units wearing those.

The second one is, why would Scully make blazer crests for the Queen's Bays and RAF, since those are a British units ??????
