    Canada Militia Button

    Went out for a short farm hunt recently and was pleased to find this Canada Militia button.
    Despite the Irish back mark of P.Tait.Limerick I couldn’t find much more info about this button.
    After searching I found the same button on an online auction site.
    This description is from Marway militaria;
    N.W.M.P., Royal North West Mounted Police, Canadian Militia, ARTILLERY Component Button. Brass , Victorian Crown over 3 Cannons, facing to left, with words CANADA MILITIA on the sides, 22.00mm size. The Artillery component of the NWMP, wore these buttons on the march west in 1874. Also of course the Artillery Branch of the Canadian Militia of the time wore them.

    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9
