I am not sure why the RCH badges would be made by Gaunt in the UK. The example shown is an other ranks badge and appears to be a good quality striking. I wonder if the regiment ran short of badges and ordered a supply from the UK?

The RCR can be added to the list.
My question is more about a contradiction between policy and procurement. There was a "buy Canadian" policy in effect for system procurements and if the badges were made by Gaunt, were they regimental kit shop purchases?

I have QC officers' badges made by Gaunt. I wonder if Gaunt made the ORs' badges on their own initiative for some reason.

A qc Fusiliers Mont Royal badge is currently being offered on ebay with a stamped slider. It is a pattern that I have not seen previously. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400963634708...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Hi, I picked up this badge over the week-end. The question is, was it usual to have sliders on what I assume is an officer's badge also if possible a time for use of this badge, thanks in advance Mike

Hi Mike, sliders were used on officers' badges. More unusual to have the J R Gaunt marking.

The Royal Canadian Hussars were formed in 1958 by the amalgamation of the 6 Duke of Connaught's Royal Canadian Hussars and the 17th Duke of Yorks Royal Canadian Hussars. They are still an active unit in the Canadian militia today.
