    So, as you guys know, I portray a member of the West Nova Scotia Regiment in a WWII living history group and we have a few members who portray this unit but we are unsure of what the shoulder flash they had looked like. I have the complete

    WEST NOVA SCOTIA REGIMENT
    CANADA

    patch, while the others have cut off the CANADA section and have placed a CANADA patch 3 inches underneath the WEST NOVA SCOTIA REGIMENT patch, is there anyone that can shed some light on which is correct?
    I have the CANADA green patches which I will probably modify the West Nova patch so it matches the others, but I am just curious.
    We have been trying to find a good picture but we can seem to come across any on the net of a west novie that shows a good picture of the arm.

    Hmm, maybe someone at the local Legion hall might know...

    Glenn, Hope the photo below answers your query. As West Novies were 1st Div, beneath the 'Canada' patch would be the scarlet square indicating 1st Div.

    As far as I know the West Nova Scotias did not have an integral Canada title.

    17thDYRCH, I think he means he's got the regulation green (olive?) CANADA titles, as opposed to having a green Div patch.
