Default Officer cyclist badge?

Hi all
Does this picture show a voided officer cyclist badge?
If so has anyone come across one?
Appears different to other badges on the men in picture.
Or are my eyes playing tricks.
Kind regard
Dan

Posted in the Canadian Military Insignia section.

The jacket collars and button arrangements are another indicator.

The officer's badge doesn't look like any of the Cdn cyclists badges?

Google trawl came up with this. Looks like the other ranks pattern though the officers is fretted out may be?

Could it be a Lord Strathcona's Horse (RC) cap badge?

Default Badge ?

I'd have to agree and say Lord Strathconas Horse .
With the 50 round bandolier , I'd guess cavalry .
Rosen 10-1 . Similar photo on page # 39 ," Khaki- Uniforms of the CEF "
written by Clive Law , Service Publications .

Default Leather Bandoliers

Actually 90-round Leather Bandoliers for not only Cavalry but for mounted troops in general, which also covered cyclists.

I think Richard may be on to the identification. The permanent force officers were "spread" around the CEF to help organize the units for overseas. Cyclists were seen as a type of mounted troops, which would be an appropriate extra-regimental appointment.
