Title: Quick Question About the CACSC (ex-CLFCSC) Badge
Post by: Fred Herriot on February 16, 2013, 12:18:32
To Whomever Could Answer This Question,

Many moons ago, I did a year's duty at Fort Frontenac as a clerk for CLFCSC and supporting the NDC when it was still in operation.

I remember reading that the CLFCSC badge was actually derived from a British staff college badge, but switched the owl type around to fit a Canadian unit.

For the life of me, I can't remember which British staff college that badge was for.  Does anyone know this?

Thanks!

Staff College, Camberley.

It was the British Army's staff college -- it no longer exists, having been amalgamated into a joint staff college at another location.
