    I have a spare as well, and a canvas flash and cloth flash around here somewhere, some pics of my display at the Fort McLeod show.

    I have heard that this badge was also made by the CTTC, it was a test of the skill of the student. I have only seen one once, it was handmade and had no stamping on the back, but made from the same type of stamped brass. I wonder if the student had to make a die then stamp the badge. There is also a plastic version of this badge, very hard to find, the same colour as the Army Cadet plastic badge.

    I am very interested in seeing a canvas example of the CTTC title. They were a training establishment and never went overseas as a unit. Instead the personnel trained in the CTTC were put in the reinforcement stream for the appropriate Corps. (Most CTTC men due to their skills were RCOC, RCEME, RCA, etc.) Printed canvas titles were only made for units in the UK, with two or three exceptions and the type of canvas for the Canadian made titles is quite different from the UK pattern. (Compare the Canadian Army Trades School or some Canadian Armoured Corps titles with the UK issue printed. The UK all was made with a backing material.)

    Hi Mike,

    Is that a Sherbrooke Regiment QC cap badge I spy in your second pic? Just curious but is it lugged, slider or screw posts?

    Thanks
