Canadian variations of badges of rank.

The Canadian Armed Forces used the same rank insignia as the rest of the British Empire (Commonwealth) until recently. I do not intend to reproduce them all here again. Only variations unique to Canada will appear here.

  • Master Gunner's sleeve badge, Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery


  • Quarter Master Sergeant's sleeve badge. This is similar to the QMS badge of other armies in the Empire (Commonwealth) but instead of a laurel wreath there is one of maple leaves.


  • This Major's crown rank badge is as worn by Canadian Paratroops. It is made from plastic.
