Going off subject a bit. Can anyone recognise this badge that was in a tin of old buttons.

It is silver with dark blue background and has the cross with two Sweeps through it. I have a feeling it could be a rowing club or Watermans association. Never been able to find anything.

sorry about photo quality.20180419_042253.thumb.jpg.2c685846277cdd429b6fcce9369a2578.jpg

I recon you have done it FTM. Many Many thanks. Though how it came to be in the family button box that goes back to Victorian times wiil, I fear, forever remain a mystery. Brill detective work by all concerned. Many many thanks.

Been digging around this is their history

The Scottish Canoe Association (Comann Curach na h-Alba in Scots Gaelic) is the governing body for canoeing and kayaking in Scotland.

It covers all branches of the sport from recreational activities to whitewater racing, slalom racing and wildwater racing; flatwater sprint racing and marathon racing; canoe sailing; canoe polo; surf kayaking and canoeing; and extreme racing (including the international event on the Glen Nevis in Lochaber).

It was founded in 1939 by four canoe clubs, the Canoe Section of the Camping Club, Clyde Canoe Club, Forth Canoe Club (1934) and Scottish Youth hostels Canoe Club. The body now has approximately 3,000 individual members, and 90 affiliated clubs and associate organisations.

I can't buy them these days as people have gone a bit  stupid but always happy for swaps, problem is everyone has the same ones!

I also like builders plaques obviously some are worth more than others
