They were used for a while in the early 90s, cant remember exactly now. These were given in a combination of scores on physical training and shooting. I still have a couple of mine but can probably find some for you if you really want them?

Earlier ones have a date for the year of the award, bottom center. Not all units wore them, they were almost unheard of out west.

It was worn on our DEU (green) jackets just above the name tag on the right side if I remember correctly.

Here's the manual that went with the badges.

It was a Land Forces Central Area (LFCA) program only and was later discontinued due to complaints that is segregated members due to a recognition colour of the badges (Gold/silver and bronze). Based on physical fitness, i.e. timed 3.2km run in full fighting order and the score on the PWT (Personal Weapons Test).

Default CF Warrior Badge and Internet Information

Why would a question like this would even be asked when all ANYONE, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, just has to do is type Canadian Forces Warrior Badge into Google and thanks to the magic of the internet, the answer appears.

Because we all know that when we Google something, the 100% correct answer appears 100% of the time. Google is NEVER wrong.
