Found this one with my Sherbrooke Fusilier Regiment slip-ons..

Good, bad, ugly?

Rare, common, unique?

Worth an interresting amount?

Hello Patrick. You patch is an example of an unauthorized formation sign for "W" Force, the garrison troops sent to Newfoundland. It was never officially approved, but was taken into use by some of the troops sent to the area. Scarce patch.

Could the Sherbrooke Fusilier Regiment have been in contact with the "W" Force?

Yes they were......from15 August 1941 to 19 February 1942 as infantry IIRC, then they were transformed into an armoured unit while at Debert.Left Canada 27 October 1942 for the UK.
