Louise's Catalogue in PDF form (VERSION 8)

Last Updated: May 29, 2008

This catalogue took me eons to put this all together. You're welcome to download these for your own use, but please don't copy them to your site and claim them as yours, since I put a lot of work into it and got permission from many kind collectors to use some of their images in these files. Thanks.

I'd also like to make a note that most of the photos/scans in this catalogue are not from my own collection. I'd like to thank the many contributors including Beth Street, Kim Lanyon, Gord Ennis, Debbie (Ogilvie) Wright, Alf Silke, Annette Preston, Bev Witham, and all those who've helped provide information. You will see which photos came from who by looking at the rightmost column of the checklist, for the initial of the person from whom the image comes.

I haven't been able to track down the sources and/or owners of some of the images, and therefore a few of them are used without explicit permission. If you see an image of yours in the catalogue and would like credit for it (e.g., if you're an eBay seller), please let me know and I'll make the change (or, which hopefully won't be the case, remove the image). I'd especially like to hear back from Ursula from this site, since a few of the rare Manitoba images are from her site.

A special thanks to Jennifer who put together her original list, which was the starting point of this.

Note: Starting with Version 8, patches will not be re-numbered (unless variants are found of the same patch). If a patch is listed in the catalogue and then an older one is found, the older one will now get the next available number instead of renumbering the existing patch(es). However, an effort will still be made to put the images of the patches in chronological order in the catalogue, and notes will be made in the checklist as appropriate.

Checklist of all patches (this is basically your index)

What's changed between versions 7 and 8 - This includes the new Area/Division/District patches that have been added, and pertinent changes to existing listings. It does not, however, include the listings for which the image (of the same patch) has been replaced.

What's changed between versions 6 and 7
What's changed between versions 5 and 6
What's changed between versions 4 and 5 - I didn't advertise version 5 much, so here are the changes in case you're interested.
