Default 214th CEF

This is a badge that has eluded me for a long time. It was surprising as I live within shouting distance of Wadena Saskatchewan where the battalion recruited from and it should have been easy for me to acquire. As an aside Wadena named there hockey team the Wadena Wildcats in honor of the 214th. I am now a happy camper...

Default 214 Badge

Nice find!!

Would/could you take a high quality photo/scan or the badge and send it to me for the placement in the CEF gallery. If you do a scan, please make it 600dpi or better. I will do an edit on the image and it will be posted in the gallery. You will (of course) be credited as the image owner.

Thanks

Larry
