Default Mobile Striking Force

There are two or three versions of this type of badge. All have a loose white mesh like backing material. Photos of the men for the Mobile Striking Force taken at the end of the 40's early 50's confirm these wings were acquired, possibly from US sources, for this organization.

The reverse side has crude looking white mesh material unlike other war time production Canadian wings.
