Yes scarce, C22s almost impossible, and all shoulder numbers are uncommon.

Somewhere, there was a discussion about the C/22 collars, and in the 22nd Bn only the officers wore them?

I think you are right Bill.I can tell that in these parts the collars are worth their weight in gold. I still haven't found yet a period photograph showing an officer of the 22nd Batt. wearing the beaver collars.

Default 22nd Bn Interim Cap Badge

All:
Great post with some great badges and pictures. Here is an example of a 22nd interim cap badge with a "Caron Bros Montreal 1915" silver plated leaf. On the leaf is a "22" done in gilt on sterling silver. A beautiful cap badge in the hand.

That's a great find Don and, it's probably as scarce as a pair of 22nd Bn. beaver collars.

Bonjour ou bonsoir à tous,
Je suis content de revoir ce post.
Le 22ème (Vandoss) est toujours considéré comme un bataillon exceptionnel ici dans ma petite région.
Ils ont combattu à Vimy Ridge, Hill 60, et surtout se sont fait massacrer fin août 1918 à Chérisy, le long de la route Arras Cambrai
"À la fin de la Première Guerre mondiale, le 22e Bataillon compte 1 074 morts et 2 887 blessés ; ce qui représente une perte de 67 % de l'effectif total de 5 919 militaires" cf le net.
Ici on ne les a pas oubliés.Je suis collectionneur mais pour le souvenir.


Hello or good evening everyone,
I'm happy to review this post.
The 22nd (Vandoss) is still considered an exceptional battalion here in my small region.
They fought at Vimy Ridge, Hill 60 and especially were massacred at the end of August 1918 in Chérisy, along the Arras Cambrai road
"At the end of the First World War, the 22nd Battalion has 1,074 dead and 2,887 wounded, which represents a 67% loss of the total strength of 5,919 soldiers", see the net.
Here we have not forgotten them. I am a collector but for the memory.

Jean Paul
