Up first my shoulder flash to the 1 Canadian Parachute Battalion English manufactured I do believe and printed on canvas these are deemed to be quite rare .
I recently found its mate for sale at( Up the Royals Militaria | WW2 | WWII | WW1 | WWI | Canadian | military | insignia | collectibles | cap badges | cloth | canvas | titles | flashes | patches | collars | buy | sell | trade ) for a staggering $560.00 cdn I near fell over they have removed the price in the last couple of days on a lot of there items I am not shur if it is because they are pending a sale I did not relize that these wear so costly .
Which brings me to my next question does any one know of a good dealer that carries Canadian/British Para items such as insignia as I would love to find a mate for it.
Second up an Airborne sleave stripe embroidered in wool I just aquired from a antique store last night I do find these particular embroidered sleave stripes a little on the confusing side as they were manufacture by more than one firm during the war I would appreciate any and all opinions on this stripe as to authenticity .
