    Default Canvas Parachute Corps Pegasus/Airborne insignia

    Good morning gentlemen I would like to add a couple of insignia/patches to my 1 Canadian Parachute corps display I have one original shoulder flash in my display now and a capbadge.
    I have seen this printed canvas Pegasus come up for sale to my eyes the detail and the backing look to be correct but I would like some other opinions if possible it would make a nice addition to my canvas shoulder title.

    The second badge I am not to shur on as it is still attached to a wool backing and is reported to have been removed from a war time BD so it is impossible to see the back side I would welcome any and all opinions on either of these two insignia.

    Regards Mark K

    That I don't know Mark, but probably, as other patches were printed for purely post war formations.
    Pete
    As an aside, in my youth, we regularly went to London and bought ex-army Kahki bush jackets for 5 shillings (25 n.p.) each and they all had printed pegasus patches on the arms,. I had so many I couldn't give them away!!! Wartime dated American combat jackets were the same price. Lord knows how many of both I have worn out. Ho hum.

    To be young again and know what we know now Pete there are many things I would have started to collect as a lad and put away for safe keeping.

    I just got mine out to look at and the reverse blue? colour sems a lot more dense than the one your showing. I will do a scan of the reverse tomorrow, in the mean time, here is a pic. of the front.
