You are viewing a vintage CEF WWI era 253rd Battalion Cap badge. This battalion was called the "Queen's University Highlanders". The rare badge is made of brass, with both original horizontal lugs in good order. A beautiful design on the rather large badge, with a Victoria style crown over top. Note the Queen's University crest just above the number. Hallmarked "Kinnear & ...??" (view scans). This battalion was raised from members in Eastern Ontario, with headquarters in Kingston during July of 1916. They sailed for England on April 29th, 1917. A small battalion of only 478 members (low badge count). Upon arrival the 253rd became part of the 5th Reserve battalion.
