Response to Changes

Only four units in 1939 were entitled to embroidered unit titles; PPCLI, the two regiments of Guards, and the Canadian Provost Corps. As pointed out by Bill, the others wore metal titles or else worsted "slip ons" on Battle Dress. The colourful cloth badges started to appear in 1941 though the 2nd Division did not start to wear them until "after Dieppe", opting instead for the battle patch geometric shapes over the div patch as outlined in Clive's book.
