You are viewing a bi-metal cap badge for the New Brunswick Rangers Regiment. The badge has a king's crown over the silver colored moose motif and scrolling, indicating its period of use. Both original lugs are original and come with their cross pin as found. I'd rate this badge as in excellent condition for it age, showing polishing residue from field use on the obverse.

Some History... The Royal New Brunswick Regiment was formed 10 September 1869 in Woodstock, New Brunswick as The Carleton Light Infantry. It was re-designated 8 May 1900 as the 67th Regiment "Carleton Light Infantry", and after WWI it became The Carleton Light Infantry. In 1936 it was again amalgamated with The York Regiment and renamed The Carleton and York Regiment. On the 4th of May 1951, The Carleton and York Regiment mobilized two temporary Active Force companies designated "E" and "F" Company. "E" Company was reduced to nil strength upon its personnel being incorporated into the 1st Canadian Infantry Battalion, later the 3rd Battalion,The Canadian Guards, for service in Germany with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and was disbanded on 29 July 1953. "F" Company was initially used as a reinforcement pool for "E" Company. On 15 May 1952, it was reduced to nil strength, upon its personnel being absorbed by the newly formed 2nd Canadian Infantry Battalion, later the 4th Battalion, Canadian Guards. Today the Royal New Brunswick Regiment (RNBR) is a reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Army based in New Brunswick. The Royal New Brunswick Regiment is part of 37 Canadian Brigade Group, 5th Canadian Division. From 1954 to 2012 it consisted of two battalions, but in 2012 the 2nd Battalion was reorganized as a distinct regiment, the North Shore Regiment. The RNBR holds 65 battle honours.
