The MP Kit shop has finally received the smaller 2 x 2 inches CADPAT Close Protection (CP) Qualification badge patch with Velcro backing.
There are now 2 Sizes of patches available.
Large Size measuring 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches is great for mounting in shadow boxes or displays, worn on vests or ball caps.
Smaller size measuring 2 x 2 inches which is the official size for wearing on the CADPAT uniform by serving members
Initially, when attempting to fabricate the CP Patch, we were advised by our supplier that due to the extensive detail required for this patch, the smallest patch possible would be the 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches patch.
Our suppler, who is the same for CANEX and the CF, has now designed the newer and smaller version so that it meets the current CF Regulations on Qualification badge sizes.
Any currently serving member, who purchased the larger size patch believing it was an authorized patch may, from their "Forces email account" contact the Kit shop manager at firstname.lastname@example.org for a replacement - please include your invoice number if possible.
The management and staff of the MP Kit shop apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused.
Serving Members: There is a CANFORGEN out ref the placement of badges on CADPAT and authorized providers.
