You are viewing a CEF 79th Battalion Cap badge for the Cameron Highlanders of Canada. The badge is in still beautiful condition, which may be why a previous owner tried to put a tang attachment on it. Appart from that on the obverse, this badge is exceptionally well preserved.

Some History: On 1 February 1910 the 79th Cameron Highlanders of Canada came into existence. This was Western Canada's first highland regiment, and was the result of persistent efforts by Winnipeg's Scottish community for the start up... The Regiment's first honourary Colonel was Lord Strathcona (Sir Donald A. Smith) GCMG, GCVO. His ties to the military and Scottish community of Winnipeg were extensive. After a great deal of investment (over $25,000 in 1910!!!) and three years of subsequent military training, by the start of WWI, they were, as their motto declares, "Ullamh,"- Ready!.
