C026379 "22e REGIMENT CANADIEN FRANCAIS" CAP BADGE.

BACKGROUND: The regiment was formed early during the First World War as volunteers from across Canada massed in Valcartier Quebec for training. The first French speaking unit was the "22nd (French Canadian) Infantry Battalion CEF" that went to France where the unit was broken up to provide reinforcements. In April 1920, a new Regiment was formed using veterans of the 22nd Battalion and in 1921, King George V renamed the Regiment bestowing them the title "Royal." The nickname of the 22e is the "Van Doos" which is from "Ving-deux" which is 22 in French.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A 4cm x 6.5cm, two piece stamped cap badge with the background being the profile of the beaver with the Kings Crown at the top of "Regiment Canadien Francais" and "22" intersecting to the bottom. On the bottom, inscribed on the branch is "Je Me Souviens". Pin-back device intact.
