Default RCD Shoulder title

Hi Gents,

Found this in the bottom of a box and think it is for The Royal Canadian Dragoons.
Is it usual for these to be maker marked, what is the significance of the green backing and is there any way to know what era it is from?
I would welcome any info you can provide.

Thanks

Kevin

RCD Shoulder titles maker marked 'William Scully, Montreal' are WW1 vintage.

No idea about the felt backing - others may be better placed to answer that question.

Taken from Chris Brooker's updated version of the 'Royal Canadian Dragoons in WW1':

"In WWI the Regiment served as a component of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade, serving as infantry with the 1st Division from May to December 1915, then in 1916 reconstituted as a component of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade, this serving with the British Cavalry Corps for the duration of the Great War."

The green backing is unusual, never seen that before.
