Most likely these badges were made in the early days of Queen Elizabeth's reign. This postal organization got its start as a military unit, and operated as such, with efficiency and pride of service. ("Nor rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail, will stop us from our appointed rounds.")
Established 3 May 1911 as The Canadian Postal Corps; and disbanded shortly after the unification of The Canadian Forces by the Trudeau government in 1968. The Queen added the prestigious "Royal designation to their name in 1961, but less than a decade later, thanks to the socialist leanings of the Liberals and Trudeau Ist, as well as disruptive unions, the postal service lost its efficient military nature, and eventually became the questionable, expensive, and inefficient organization it is today, eventually being privatized to a great degree, again by Liberals, until it was unrecognizable when compared to the prestigious corps that it was originally. Interestingly it also got a lot more expensive too. Remember the 5 cent stamps of the '60's. It now costs a staggering $.95 to mail letter. If we compare car prices from that time; under the same inflationary results, a $4000 regular Chevy car in 1965 would cost 19 times more or over $76,000 today. More than twice what they are currently worth...
