The badge of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps consists of a two crossing maple stems and maple leaves with a Kings Crown on top, with the text "Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps" on a ribbon at the bottom. At the centre of the two maple stems is a rod of Asclepius consisting of a serpent entwined around a staff.
After the Second World War, a series of coloured berets were adopted, with other arms and services wearing midnight blue berets, with a large coloured "flash" in corps colours – dull cherry for the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps.〔(canadiansoldiers.com )〕
When the Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Canadian Air Force were merged in 1968 to form the Canadian Forces, the
Royal Canadian Dental Corps and Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps were deactivated and merged with their Naval and Air Force counterparts to form the Dental Branch (Canadian Forces) and the Canadian Forces Medical Service of the Canadian Forces Health Services Group (CF H Svcs Gp). When the Canadian Forces unified on 1 February 1968, the rifle green beret was adopted as the CF standard.
