Congratulations Bill! Beautiful book. Haven't been able to start reading from the beginning yet, because I am jumping from one section to another.

My copy arrived yesterday, I have nothing but praise for the author/seller and even the postal system.
The large tome was posted from Canada 1 day after a small package was posted to me from Yorkshire. They arrived on the same day!

Default BRAVO ZULU !!

Have just finished Bill's book, and all I can say is "Outstanding!" Well done that man!

For all and sundry, I predict that this book is destined to be the go-to reference for Canadian shoulder titles for years to come. Well researched as shown by the copious amount of footnotes to Library & Archives Canada sources.

This book is a monster.....8 1/2 x 11, hardcovered, just over 500 pages with a ton of coloured pictures of the Canadian Army's shoulder titles, some showing the different varieties of the same badge. Tips the scale at 4.8 Lb (2.2 kg).

It is expensive, but speaking personally, I think it is worth every penny.

Once again Bill, all I can say is congratulations on all your work and research.

Ian

Bill, are you collecting errata? What is the best way and venue to communicate it to you?
