|If insurance is declined the buyer takes all responsibility for damage or loss in shipping.
You are viewing an excellent example of a Queen's crown era cap badge for the British Columbia Dragoons. Complete with its original tang type attachment very clean, this badge is hallmarked "Breadner-85" ,exemplary of this fine armored regiment which had its origins as a mounted rifle unit.
The regiment was named The British Columbia Mounted Rifles in 1920, and then in 1929 to the The British Columbia Dragoons, the name still has today, The British Columbia Dragoons. Part of the reason for the change was to forever divorce the regiment from infantry duties. During WW2 the regiment was designated the 5th Motorcycle Regiment (BCD), and later became an armoured car unit. Finally it was made into an armoured regiment, the 9th Armoured Regiment (BCD), they were deployed to Italy as part of the 2nd Armoured Brigade, 5th Canadian Armoured Division. The regiment saw heavy action in the Liri Valley, was the first unit to break through the Gustav Line in Italy, 1944, and helped smash the Gothic Line holding Point 204 right in the center of that line.
