Changeover to New Army Kit

C INT C/C RENS C recently announced that it has partnered with CANEX to supply the new Collar Dogs, Buttons, and Metal Shoulder Titles for the Corps. These items are expected to become available sometime in 2021.

As the transition to these new items commences, the Kit Shop has to take required steps to avoid the necessity to write off large quantities of Army-related regalia. We no longer stock the Metal Shoulder Titles. As our current stocks of the Int Star-type Collar Dogs and Buttons are depleted, we will not be ordering more stock. We currently estimate, at historical rates of ordering that we will have sufficient stock to last until late summer early fall.

At this time, we will also continue to stock C INT C/C RENS C DEU slip-ons, CADPAT Velcro ranks, and identifier titles for CADPAT slip-ons. We will also continue to stock Silver Mess Kit Chains. However, we will no longer continue to purchase other Mess Kit items such as Medium and Small Buttons.

If you have any questions, it is requested that they be directed towards the Corps leadership: the Kit shop cannot answer any questions regarding the changeover.

Addresses

In the past month, we have had Canada Post return a number of orders to us marked "Address Incomplete." In one recent week we had 3 orders returned for this reason. In all cases, we discovered that the customers lived in multi-unit buildings and forgot to include their apartment or unit number. In such cases, Canada Post automatically returns the package to us.

It is highly important to verify, both when you send your original order and when we send you your invoice, that your address is full and correct. Any returned orders will be invoiced for additional shipping and handling costs before we send them back out again.

CADPAT Ranks

We have received our stock of CADPAT Velcro rank badges with C INT C and C RENS C titles from our supplier and sew-ons for those wearing the older slip-ons. The wear of these items has been approved by the Director C INT C/C RENS C.

The order is available at the appropriate CADPAT item on the Products drop-down above.


Plaques

We are now offering plaques which can be used to mount and display one or two challenge coins or which include a pewter branch badge.

The wooden portions of these plaques are made from wood locally sourced in the Ottawa area and are handcrafted in our own workshops.

Coin plaques can be ordered without coins or coins can be ordered seperately and mounted by us.

Plaques can be ordered from our "Presentation" page from the "Products" menu.


Jewellery

We are now offering a series of unique handcrafted jewellry produced by a member of the Branch. Details can be found here.
