INSIGNIA of the 7th CMR CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES HQ in PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE Manitoba so rare only 8 to 12 sets thought to have been made for officers only thus most reference books do not even show pictures of these badges also of note this is the unit BILLY BISHOP first joined before his famous career with the ROYAL FLYING CORPS.

Paul you have a wonderful collection!
Several years ago, I aquired several cap badges from an estate. I suspect they are either British or Canadian. Would you be so kind as to help me identify them?

Here is the 1st one.

Hi Paul,

Superb collection. Should the 16th Canadian Scottish not be with a king's crown?
