C025879 "ROYAL CANADIAN ARTILLERY" CAP BADGE.
BACKGROUND: The roots of the RCA go back as far as 1793 to "The Loyal Company" formed in Saint John New Brunswick as the longest unbroken service in the artillery regiment. Originally, in 1832, King William IV allowed the Royal Regiment the right to wear the Royal arms and supporter over a cannon with the combined motto "Ubique Quo Fas et Gloria Ducunt" (Everywhere Whiter Right and Glory Lead) which later the Canadian Artillery was granted the authorization to use "Canada" in place of "Ubieque." It was not until after WWI the RCA, in recognition of distinguished overseas service, asked once again to use "Ubique" and was given permission by King George V. in 1926.
PHYSICAL BACKGROUND: A 6.5cm x 5cm, triangular shaped brass badge with cannon and a wheel with "Ubique" and "Quo Fas et Gloria Ducunt" both printed on scrolls at the top and bottom. A Kings Crown is located at the top of the badge. A brass tang is suspended from the top. Complete with original pin-back device.
