You are viewing a sweetheart badge from the WWI 195th CEF Battalion. In very good condition with its original straight pin type fastener intact and in good order. Made of thin brass, a lovely pin for a girlfriend or wife. Hallmarked Wheatley Bros. so it may also be an officer grade title.
The 195th CEF (City of Regina) Battalion, served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. Recruits were raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. They began recruiting during the winter of 1915/16 from Regina and the surrounding district. The 195th sailed for England in November of 1916. Upon arrival on November 11, 1916, the 195th became part of the 32nd Reserve Battalion. Today the 195th Battalion is perpetuated by The Royal Regina Rifles, who added other battle honors to that regiment's proud history during WWII.

Sweetheart badges and pins were often given to a female loved one, by their soldier lover, son (usually), or father. They could have been supplied, for a cost, by the quartermaster or by a private organization, such as Birks. Most were simply converted uniform devises from the regiment, and were available in the tuck shops. Many, if not all of the battalions and regiments had this type of inspirational badge. As the war wore on, many of the givers were lost, and did not return. Consequently, these items became very cherished by their recipients. Therefore they are generally called sweethearts?

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning

We will remember them.
