Default TANK (Instructors) Badge

This is a very scarce badge. Babin and Taboika both have this badge in their books. It is not in the Cross or Harper book. I have seen this badge in a collection that is absolutely original (it dates from 1920). The only thing is that I cannot remember if the tanks on the leaf were so "white metal" or were more of a silver. I'm digging - I think I took a photo of it.

Default Tank Cap Badge

Hello Larry: This badge is out of what era? WWI, between the wars, or WWII.
Cheers.
Moe.

Default CEF Tank Hat Badge

Yes, as WizBang identified the badge was worn by the CEF in the late portion of The First World War.
