    Patches

    These came with a lot I got the other day. Is the first patch Canadian or British? Dont know what the ribbon was for, the last two I suspect are very old Boy scout patches. Any help appreciated. Cheers Brian

    Thanks Jeff. I dont collect Britsh but some of their insignia used by Canada as well. Could not find that one in my books so assumed it was British. Cheers Brian

    Hi guys,

    The eight army patch can be found on Canadian BD's, usually 1st and 5th Division. The others look like boy scout merit badges and a coronation ribbon.

    Knowing nothing about Boy Scout patches (so take these suggestions for what they are worth) I think the two patches might represent a scout's first snake bite and bee sting...get the poison ivy patch and you'll have the whole set. Wink
