You are viewing a vintage CEF 194th Battalion Sweetheart pin from the WWI era. Made of brass, with its original cross pin  in good order. This is a high quality design with enameling in perfect condition. Sweetheart pins where well made period copies of the soldier's cap badge often, as this one is with features highlighted using colored enamel. Soldiers would often make gifts of these to wives mothers and, of course, girlfriends .

This battalion known as the Edmonton Highlanders was of course formed in Edmonton, Alberta during the summer of 1916. This was composed of  937 members.  They sailed for England on November 14th, 1916. Upon arrival they became part of the 9th Reserve Battalion supplying reinforcements to other battalions fighting in France.

Sweetheart badges and pins were often given to a female loved one, by their soldier lover, son (usually), or father. They could have been supplied, for a cost, by the quartermaster or by a private organization, such as Birks. Most were simply converted uniform devises from the regiment, and were available in the tuck shops. Many, if not all of the battalions and regiments had this type of inspirational badge. As the war wore on, many of the givers were lost, and did not return. Consequently, these items became very cherished by their recipients. Therefore they are generally called sweethearts?
