Hello Laurent,thr 12e Régiment Blindé du Canada was created in 1968.The beret shown is dated 1952.In my opinion these two item were put together to increase the selling value.

I saw 1950s dated maroon berets in Petawawa clothing stores in the early 1990s. I wouldn't discount that badge on a 1952 dated beret. But I wouldn't buy it since I don't understand the appeal of non-wartime berets.
