Default DND fire department modern cap badges

A modest collection of DND / generic Canadian civilian fire dept cap badges. Note in the second pic the inscriptions have changed. The new versions have the "fire service d'incendie" inscription. I am looking for maker varieties of these badges, I have the following:

Derks - silver and gold
Stokes - new inscription silver and gold
MC 84 - silver and gold
Balfour - gold
W. Scully - gold
C 81 (+ inside C) - gold with slider
Wallet badges are all marked stokes.
Several in both gold and silver with no makers mark. If anyone can identify the MC and C makers mark that would be appreciated.

If any one has any other varieties please let me know, if anyone has any these for sale please PM me. Anyone interested in obtaining the new inscription badges Can buy them on the stokes website.

Regarding the badge on the fob.
On the radar sites, we had two trade firefighters. A sergeant and a master corporal. The rest of the department were auxilaries - personnel from other trades who were given a firefighting course and then answered calls the same way as civilian volunteers. Personnel on the auxiliary department were issued with the DND Fire Department cap badge which was worn on a fob from the right breast pocket button of the workdress tunic/shirt beneath the name tag.

Default DND patches with new inscription

Im not sure when the inscription was changed, But it looks like smaller municipalities that use the same design are changing as well. I believe this generic pattern was designed by the Canadian Fire Fighters association. Transport Canada use this design as well.

Two considerations. The last version of the name is "more" bilingual than those that included "Department". And most embroidery companies charge by the letter, so there would be a bit of an economy in the latter pattern. (Of course with the costs of everything increasing, the savings may have been lost with other price increases.)
