Default Opinions on some shoulder titles

Last year I purchased a substantial part of a massive collection of cloth insignia. Inevitably this means I have a lot of items that fall outside of the scope of my collections, and I've decided that one of my winter projects is to begin dispersing these in earnest.

I've learned quite about searching the Canadian section of the forum, but I would appreciate some input on the items I am posting here. I have absolutely zero qualms about marking a repro item with a black sharpie if the verdict is "guilty".

I'm pretty confident about Group 1. Per the backing, it appears that the RMR title has had the MG trimmed. Group 2 also seems good. The 12 CTR have glue and paper traces from being mounted in an album. Group 3 I think are fake or I just don't know. Bill A. posted that Chateauguy never had a printed title. I know the PEILH had one, but it's also been faked. No clue about the CAC titles. Group 4 has me mostly in the dark. I know 1 CanPara has been extensively reproduced. I think the 2nd Canadian Special Infantry Battalion looks god from the front, but I don't know what the backing is supposed to be like.

Any help would be appreciated!
