Brillant, Garth! Seems a very logical answer.

BTW, the GGFG ['GooGooFooGoos to their friends] and 'Lincs and Winks' [Lincoln and Welland Reg't] are both regiments of Canada'a primary Reserve. The first served as an armoured regiment in North West Europe in WWII and is now tasked with doing the Changing of the Guard ceremony each day on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, though its members have served in places like Afghanistan as well. A young friend of mine is a bandsman with the unit each summer. The L&W recruits in the Niagara Falls area, also served in NW Europe in War Two and has coontributed quite a high precentage of its strength to Canada's overseas missions in recent decades.

I am not an expert but would guess that the two titles are perhaps worth $20-30.00 Cdn each.

Thanks again to all who have taken the time to reply. It has all been most helpful. I know more now than I did to start for sure.

Cheers,
