Hi! My grandmother had this old photo of someone wearing a military uniform and they had Canadian cap badge, however I could not find one the same online. I believe it is circa 1900. If anyone could identify what branch he belonged to that would be great
There were "leather buttons" on the "great coat", which was basically a cheap, green copy of the "British Warm". The use of leather buttons on service dress tunics was not uncommon 100+ years ago, sometimes for convenience/availability and sometimes as regimental idiosyncrasy. Leather buttons can still be found on British Army uniforms, specifically on the service dress tunics (No. 2 dress) of officers of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.
