Default Armoured sweethearts

Here are my two Canadian armoured Sweethearts. I collect only badges with the image of the first British tanks and this one is the smallest!

Although I do not collect them (but have a few) I have a soft spot for sweetheart badges.

Hi mmokeyev

Nice sweethearts. Thank you for that post.

I don't seek them out myself but as a collector of things Cavalry and Armour, I do have the same small one as you've shown above. Tiny, eh?

Yours also looks to be in better condition than mine.

regards
Darrell

Hi Mikhail

Always nice to have a good condition example.

Although not a Sweetheart, this is a Lapel Pin from 5 years ago. 75th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps.

regards
Darrell

That 75th anniversary one is nice because it has the tank on it. I must get one! If you know where I can get one, please let me know.
Thanks, Darrell!
