Default Edmonton Regiment finds

Found a great pair of Edmonton Regt titles and a cap badge. According to an article in the Loyal Edmonton Regt's journal "The Forty-Niner", this variation is attributed to the 2nd battalion in Canada from 1941-43. The cap badge appears to have a backing made from a canvas 1st Cdn Div formation patch. Oddly enough, even though I live in Edmonton, Edmonton Regt. items don't seem to appear in the local shops very often so I was quite pleased with this find.

Hi Steve, Can you post the attribution? Is the article recent? 2nd (Reserve) Battalions were not to wear coloured embroidered titles and were to wear the worsted slip-ons. And there was a lot of correspondence in LAC files about the issue of reserve Bn's requesting titles and being refused.

"The Fortyniner" Issue No. 110 September 2011. The article was written by Captain Darby Whitebone. According to the article, the slip-on titles were worn for a few years by the 2nd Battalion and then were replaced by colored shoulder titles. I can go to the museum and do some research of my own.

It would be good to see some supporting evidence for that. Some reserve battalions did wear coloured titles, contrary to edicts. (Edicts repeated, and repeated again.)
