Hi Jean-pierre

Cap badge looks like crossed machine guns of Machine Gun Corps. Collar badge looks like Canadian mapleleaf so probably Canadian MGC

Cap badge looks like Machine Gun Corps, for it to be the MGC of Canada I think there should be a scroll under the crossed machine guns.

Shades of "Call that a knife?" - some machine gun that chap's got hold of :w00t:

The gun, I'm sure someone will correct or add is a German 8.8cm Flak 17.

I think both the cap badge and collar badge are MGC, therefore there may be no connection with the Canadian Forces. Of course he could be a Canadian serving in the British Army?

I assume the photos shows captured German artillery pieces--possibly post war?
