  Two. A matched pair of 31st Battalion Canadian Expeditionary Force brigade patches.

Good VF Condition $250

 

  One. A First Special Service Force 'CANADA' national distinctive collar badge. Maker marked SCULLY LTD MONTREAL on the reverse. Manufactured in solid die-struck brass, with a single thread-post fastener. (Badge SF-4B on pp. 19-20 of The Badges and Insignia of the Canadian Airborne Forces by Major Louis E. Grimshaw, CD) Very light wear evidencing some use; threaded fastener disk attaches seamlessly, but does not appear to match style shown in reference. A very scarce Canadian badge

Good VF Condition $585

 


  One. A Second World War era Royal Winnipeg Rifles cloth shoulder title. These titles were worn by members of the unit at the outset of their participation in the Second World War. (Refer to p. 97 of Fabric of War by Bill Alexander for details of use).

Good VF Condition $325

 

  Two. A matching pair of 'W Force - Newfoundland sleeve badges. These sleeve badges were apparently produced for wear by members of the Canadian Army serving in 'W Force' in Newfoundland during the Second World War. It is not clear that they were ever approved, and they appear to have been procured privately vice at public expense. This matched pair is unused and has glue residue on the reverse of each; a few drops of glue are present on the front, but are only visible under strong light, and can be seen reflected in the images provided. A very scarce pair of badges.

Good VF Condition $650

  


A bronzed metal sculpture of a 17th Hussars officer on horseback, mounted on a marble base Approximately 22" tall, base measures approximately 15" long x 8" wide. The metal base is marked with the artist's name, J.R. Skeaping. I believe this to be a copy or 'surmoulage' of an original Skeaping bronze, and it is priced accordingly. An attractive desk piece for a military themed office, this sculpture weighs approximately 30 pounds, and will be shipped to the buyer at cost.

Excellent condition $750
