Canadian pre-1914 uniforms

13 posts in this topic

Although I am mostly a headdress collector a couple of years ago I found myself leaning towards pre-1914 uniforms of the Canadian Militia. Here are a few of my favourites in the collection.

First up, a Corporal of the 15th (Alberta) Light Horse, ca. 1907

Very nice and thank you for posting these. I always find the red uniforms to be very striking.

Clive,

Great looking uniforms.  Why don't you bring one or two to the show  this month?  I am sure they would attract lots of interest to your table.

Regards,

Gordon

More great tunics.  I especially like the Corps of Guides  tunic.  If only I had some room left in my collecting rooms!

Regards,

Gordon
