Dan,
Here are some varieties to complement yours. I have always been amazed by the number of enamel combinations for the 224th Bn.

Dan,
No mark on the gilted one but the silver on is LM in a rectangle and sterling. I can only find a reference to the LM in a rectangle being Louis Minoggio but nothing about him or where in England nor can I find a LM Canadian mark.

I think LM is really TLM, quite often the T is missing in the stamping.
Birmingham maker Thomas Lynden Mott
All the best

Has anyone done some research into how many sweethearts may have been made? It would differ from unit to unit, but there seems to be a lot of different types even to one particular unit. Just look at the 238th examples.

Very nice badge. Does it have lugs? any Maker Mark. I would guess that it is 1.60 wide. Could I get a better photo of it (better focus) for the CEF book - please

Has a pin, may have had lugs before being gilt up. OB Allan on reverse. Yes will get a better focused pic.
