The use of brass shoulder titles during the Great War by the CASC falls into two distinct categories. The officially approved titles and a significant number of unapproved titles.
All members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force would wear the national CANADA title. These titles came in a number of variants. In addition, the corps was granted permission to wear a CASC title which was to be worn above the CANADA title. In reality, most units wore only one of the titles, choosing either the corps or national title.
Later in the war a number of CASC units had unit specific metal titles made. These were never officially approved.
CASC For this title, several variants using different dies were used . As can be seen above, the cap badge in the centre of the title is different. One uses the plain cap badge while the one on the rights has the buckled annulus pattern badge.
