    I posted the brass titles that I acquired from a fellow collector recently. Nice to have the foresight to bring these with me so I could mount them correctly. Usually things sit on my desk for months until I find the time to do my updates. As was the case with the Westminster Regiment titles.

    First up is the completed set for the Ontario Regiment.

    Second is the completed set for the Princess Louise Fusiliers of the 5th Canadian Armoured Division

    This set I find interesting that was able to get the L.S.H. titles

    This set is The Westminster Regiment, also of the 5th Canadian Armoured Division. I had a set of curved Chrome titles that I am most certain were quite modern. Nice to have a set of Brass ones to put in their place.

    Here is a photo of my overall display for the 5th Canadian Armoured Division. Rarely is this display ever out from under glass. The only time it is out is when I have updates to do. NOW if only I could the Titles for the Cape Breton Highlanders, my 5th Div set would be complete.

    Thanks for the interest guys. Yes I have done similar displays for the other 4 Canadian Overseas Divisions. Also one that combines 1st and 2nd CDN Armoured Bges, 1st Canadian Army, 1st and 2nd Canadian Corps. Also working on but not displayed are the Corps badges. If I can find the time, I will certainly take a few more photos.

    These displays are usually under glass, mounted to the wall. Rarely do they get removed for updating.
