    Not one to criticise using the vast knowledge of the members of this forum to help in gaining authenticity of items, as I/we all do it at some point, (maybe me more than most) but if you remember to be polite and thank members for sharing their knowledge and expertise on individual items, like the one listed in your post listed below we/they will be more forthcoming with sharing this wealth of knowledge on the subjects with you.
    "…knowing him, and something of his deeds, it was impossible not to believe in greatness. In that square figure was housed a spirit of grandeur, and with his massive heroism went gentleness and modesty, even humility. He had no need to proclaim his virtue, for history would be his spokesman."
    Eric Linklater on Wavell.

    Looks to be a Canadian BD, not a fan of the insignia, but your lack of politeness could see you leaving the forum soon and leaves me not really being bothered to help. If you want to buy top end items, do the research and don't expect to buy them cheaply as that way leads to lots of money wasted on fakes.

    PS what is a REPO? Perhaps you mean REPRO being short for reproduction.


    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Thanks for that Jerry !

    'Repo' means repossession - the two terms seem
    to get mixed up by some.........!

    This pattern of Parachute Regt title is post war to start with. I would pass on this BD blouse.

    Cheers, Ade.
