The badge, red and blue are the Artillery colours and the zig-zag an Artillery motif. The zig-zag design appears to be a simplified variant of the patch worn by the Canadian Corps Heavy Artillery during 1914-1918. Although apparently on a 2nd Corps blue diamond, this same design of badge was also worn by 1st Corps Artillery up to around November 1943 before being adopted by 2nd Corps Artillery. For additional notes on 1st and 2nd Corps Artillery badges, see INS 104 and 279. Formation history: for a summary history of 2 Corps, see INS 8.
