You are viewing an exquisit cap badge and collar set of brass badges from the 249th CEF battalion. The members of the 249th came mostly from the Regina area of Saskatchewan. All three badges have their original lugs and are in good condition. They were all made using a stamping method. The cap badge has an interesting motto ... "Heads Up".
Though this batallion was originally instituted in July of 1916, they did not actually travel to England until February of 1918. The 724 members of this smaller batallion sailed under command of Lt. Col. C.B. Keenlyside, and upon arrival in England they were succunded to various Canadian Reserve Battalions responding as needed to the front lines.
Guaranteed 100% genuine. A clean original set of 3 which includes the presentation box ...
