Badge

This badge was designed to be worn as a pin by security and logistics personnel during a Canadian tour undertaken by members of the Royal Family. It uses the personal cypher (usually the initial letter of the name ensigned by the appropriate heraldic crown or coronet) or badge of the member of the Royal Family undertaking the tour, along with a particular background shape and combination of colours.
