    RCASC 2MAC   Empty RCASC 2MAC

    Hello all,
    My Pop was a driver in the 2MAC. I have some of his war records and a few b&w photos.  I am looking for any info I can find on insignias and pins etc. Was wondering what color the shoulder flash would be. The color of his beret. Any history of the 2MAC deployment in Europe. And finally, would a flag be included in a military burial and if so, how would it be folded?

    Thanks

    I found this photo in the Canadian Archives. Looks like First Canadian Army flash, red diamond with a central blue bar, Beret was Khaki.
