You are viewing an excellent specimen of the solid brass shoulder title badge for the Sherbrooke Regiment. This hard to find badge has both horizontal original lugs intact and in good order. It also comes with its cross pin.
The Sherbrooke Regiment was initially formed in 1866 as the Sherbrooke Battalion of Infantry, becoming the 53rd (Sherbrooke) Battalion in 1867. This regiment provided volunteers for the 12th Battalion CEF in 1914. The following year, it provided troops for the 117th Battalion CEF; formed initially as a mounted unit, but quickly converting to infantry. This battalion became the first non British, unit, to provide the King's Guard at Buckingham Palace in London.
In 1940, parts of the regiment joined with Les Fusiliers de Sherbrooke to form the 27th Canadian Armoured Regiment. The Sherbrooke Regiment continued as infantry. After the end of the Second World War, The Sherbrooke Regiment was re-tooled as an armour regiment, becoming the 12th Armoured Regiment (Sherbrooke Regiment), perpetuating the traditions of the Sherbrooke Fusiliers.
In 1958, the number was dropped, and the regiment's name became The Sherbrooke Regiment (RCAC). In 1965, it was joined by the 7th/11th Hussars to become the Sherbrooke Hussars.
