Default New Brunswick Machine Gun Draft CEF

This is one of my favourite badges from my collection. I once saw a unit picture and it was a draft of only 50 men. Just thought that I would share.

About fifteen years ago I purchased an enamel / metal Officers shoulder title "NBMGD", in Portland OR. I don't collect MG items so it went to a very advanced Cdn MG collector. Nice badge for $35!

Rob,

If it was in your hand you shouldn't have let it go

Here is a picture of the title and the collar badge.

Would it be possible to get the measurements of the HB, Col and Shoulder Title - Please! Just the width would be great!! Any chance of getting the original image (of all three) emailed to me for the "CEF Book's" Thanks - Larry
