Please find an example of capbadges for ea Regt on the 1945 List of Canadian Armoured Corps units. I believe them all to be authentic period examples other than the FGH and 1CACR. Am unsure of the Halifax Rifles one.

Bill wrote:Cliff, Clarification please. The CAC was granted the "Royal" designation on August 2, 1945. I don't have the RCAC history, but was it not at that time that the badge was changed? Mazeas does not have the mailed fist pattern badge GO dates.
Bill wrote:Hi Darrell, What type of fasteners are on the Fort Garry's? Could you post an image of the reverse of the badge?

The next design change was in 1969, the badge looks similar but the RCAC was changed to ARMOUR and a maple leaf added above it. The next change was in 1974, ARMOUR, was replaced with CANADA.
