Hi Folks,

Can someone help me identify the insignia below? It looks to be a WW1-era Canadian Military Police insignia but I haven't seen any like it nor is there anything like it on the Canadian Military Police museum website. There is no maker's mark and the back looks unusual with no lugs - any thoughts on what it would attach to?

Hmm not sure why that is. Here are the direct links to the images:

I haven't seen cap badges or similar insignia that actually saythe word "police" on it...

Two comments.  With that back, I'd say its' a modern re-cast of something, rather than an actual issed badge,as clearly there is no way to attach it to anything.  Second, while I'm out of my comfort zone with police stuff, I've got two old two-piece Toronto Police badges, which are a maple leaf with an added 'crown over beaver' in the center.  I've also seen pics of other older police badges which feature a malpe leaf.  It seemed to be a, if not 'the' common shape/background for various force.  I realize that's not a lot of help, but at least this lloks to be a remake of an actual badge and not a complete fantasy piece.

My next question at this point is why someone would have this made?

It's not really a "reproduction " because no one can identify the source..

Im my humble opinion, it is a complete fabrication aimed at deception for a quick buck...

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
