Question: I have a patch from WWI from my great-grandmother's sewing box.  I know it would be from Canada, and I assume it belongs to a relative.  Can you identify a patch that has a rectangle green, with a red circle above it?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Answer: The patch in question sounds like the 4th Canadian Division - 54th Battalion emblem.  To see a list of WWI Canadian patches go online here: http://regimentalrogue.com/misc/17b_1914-19_distinguishing_patches.jpg
