Default Command signs 1946-1968?

In the post war re-organization of the Canadian army, the former Military Districts were organized into five commands. Each was represented by a symbol, eg the wheat sheaf for Prairie Command, Martello tower for Central Command. Confirmation, these symbols were obosete when the Commands were re-organized as Militia Areas in 1968?

Hi jranrose, the area badges came after the Commands. Some of the same designs were used from the looks of it.

Hi Bill

Would this be of some small use?

Hi Darrell, Thanks. I have that doc as well. (and a 1960? version). There is no tower design on the Central Command vehicle sign, and I distinctly remember them with the tower. That would be in Toronto area and London area (Ipperwash) circa 1966-70.

There are a number of editions of this markings doc. I have one where the only device shown is for Quebec command.
