    A very nice WWII field service cap to the Victoria Rifles of Canada. The side cap is in good condition for its age. The cap was manufactured by Canadian maker Rayman Cap and is 1940 dated. To the front of the side cap are two Canadian militia buttons in black to designate a rifle regiment. A nice early Victoria Rifles of Canada cap badge with void letters on a red felt backing which are both original to the cap. It is named to D71789 Rifleman N.B. Horstall, I have not yet research him. Overall great looking side cap with no moth or damage to the Victoria Rifles of Canada. Here is a little more on the WWII service of the V.R.C...

    During the Second World War, the regiment was called out on service for local protection duties on 26 August 1939 and details of the regiment were also mobilized for active service under the designation Victoria Rifles of Canada, CASF (Details) on 1 September 1939. The details called out on active service were disbanded on 31 December 1940 and the regiment mobilized an active service unit designated as The Victoria Rifles of Canada, CASF, on 24 May 1940. It was redesignated as the 1st Battalion, The Victoria Rifles of Canada, CASF, on 7 November 1940. It served in Canada, and in Newfoundland from November 1940 to September 1941 on garrison duty as part of the 17th Infantry Brigade, 7th Canadian Division. The 1st Battalion embarked for Great Britain on 20 November 1944, and it was disbanded the next day, on 21 November 1944, to provide reinforcements to the Canadian Army in the field.
