Default Rank Badge reference Book

Check out "The Sergeant Majors Book of Badges, Book 10, Canadian Rank Badges 1855-present". It shows examples of Canadian pips and explains who wore what. Also it has the pages from various Canadioan Dress Regs that explained quite detailed who wore what rank star and on which uniform.

Default Plastic

Yes, the stars and crown ranks were manufactured during WWII by the British in plastic. They were worn by Canadians, although finding examples that can be linked to Canadians is the challenge.
