    Hello Thomas, Could you clarify? Do you mean the armlets with regimental and formation patches? Or, brassards, like the RCMP one?

    Hello Thomas, I have a couple, but not many. They are not easy to find and are getting very expensive. One to the 5 LAA Regt was sold on ebay for about $190.

    A RCE 5 CAD armlet sold for $200 yesterday. Whew. Skyrocketing prices. There was a time when corps stuff didn't even sell.

    The PPCLI and Saskatoon Light Infantry are examples from my collection. The 2 LAA recently sold on eBay but unfortunately not to me!

    Hi Thomas, Have a look at the 2 LAA titles. One LAA slopes up from the "2" and the other slopes down from the "2". The authorized pattern is the one that is on the armlet. The tunic is a coming home one, and the 2 LAA RCA are likely private purchase, as printed titles were the only government issued pattern.

    It will be interesting to see what these 5th Canadian Armoured Division Corporal brassards sell for. There's definitely a strong market for these brassards.

    Interesting armlets. Now, if one was to restore these, with 5 CAD patches, are they good examples or repros?

    Odd armlet. How the Calgary Highlanders ended up in 1 Cdn Corps is a mystery.

    Something odd about that Elgin brassard. It looks like a 1 Corps fm patch that has had the bar coloured in to make it a 1 CAB or 1 Cdn Army patch.
