The multi-colored enamel on this badge is perfect. A rare fond for the connoisseur of fine CEF badges. Hallmarked "Dingwall Winnipeg".


This badge is representative of the Winnipeg Rifles. The battalion was raised in Winnipeg in 1916 and sailed for England in May of 1917. The 387 officers and other ranks served with 18th Reserve Battalion until the close of hostilities in 1918.

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?
  

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning

We will remember them.
