    Canadian SSI - - ID needed

    Recommended Posts

    I received this as an extra goodie with a couple of SSI's today.

    Having no reliable Canadian Patch idenfication available I am counting on GMIC.

    I believe it's Army, but my knowledge ends tthere.

    In advance Thanks !

    Found it!

    Canadian Force Mobile Command

    Correct. Taken into use in the 1960s as a cloth formation patch and worn on both sleeves. With Unification of the Canadian Forces thie badge was issued as an enamel badge with two clutch pins and was worn o the right breats pocket. The "FMC" is a bilingual name and reads in French as "Force Mobile" and in English as "Mobile Command" (aka MobCom), essentially the "army" portion of the Canadian forces. I briefly touch on this badge in my book "Distinguishing Patches - Formation Patches of the Canadian Army 1916-1996".
