    Thank you for the additional information Roger.
    You may be correct on the badge being a hat badge. However being only one inch wide and one + one eight inch tall I thought it more likely to be a collar tab.

    The “collar tab” looks more like a cap badge Bruce. You can date it fairly precisely since the 130th Battalion was authorized on 22nd December 1915 as the “130th ‘Overseas Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force” and embarked for Britain on 23rd September 1916 at Halifax, Nova Scotia on the SS Lapland.

    Its personnel were absorbed by the “12th Reserve Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force” on 6th October 1916 to provide infantry reinforcements for the Canadian Corps in the field and disbanded on 21st May 1917. The 12th Battalion then formed part of the Canadian Training Depot at Tidworth Camp in Wiltshire, England.

    Their Canadian base was in Pembroke, Ontario (not Perth as indicated in the Wiki entry) so it’s still a long way from home, but I guess serving men enlisting in Ontario would have had family connections elsewhere.

    Bruce. I am glad to see the great things that you found but I sure hate to see what happened to your Metal Detector. I hope it is a quick, easy and cheap fix.

    But the good feelings for the day went downhill soon after.
    My 17" coil bit the dust.

    This is the absolute highlight of both hunts.
    And as far as I am concerned this is better than silver or gold.
    I have no idea why or how this Ontario regiment collar tab was lost here in Victoria https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/130th_...enfrew%29,_CEF

    When I got home I pulled the battery to charge it.
    And this is what I see.
