Default RCAC Buttons

Hi,

Any idea what buttons are in presently in use for the royal canadian armoured corps currently? I don't think it is the RCAC with the QC above the letters. I have the KC set, and the QC set, but not sure what goes with the Canada set..

The buttons for the dress uniform are no longer generic to the Armoured Corps. There are specific buttons to either of the 3 Canadian regular force armoured regiments, those being, in no specific order:

- The Royal Canadian Dragoons,
- Lord Strathcona's Horse
- 12E Regiment du Blinde du Canada

Likewise, there are unique buttons to each of the 18 Canadian armoured reserve units.

For more info, check out Wikipedia, search criteria on google: ROYAL CANADIAN ARMOURED CORPS

The RCAC kit shop is on line through Facebook. They sell RCAC buttons.
