    the blouse looks ok (could do with a few more photos) but i think the pegasus are repros..not shure on the titles. they look identical to a set i used to wear while re-enacting.. i think if i remember right they came from soldier of fortune

    I'm not an expert, but I have a lot of U.S. field gear, as in 2 m-43 field jackets, 1 m-51 field jacket, a usmc Korean war poncho, a Korean war long field coat, 2 ww2 uniforms- battle dress, but the tag looks real, but never have seen that paticular co., but that doesnt mean anything. so I guess someone who knows more than I do needs to fill you in.

    Yes this has repro insignia. There are people out there that sell these original battle dress tunics and offer to stich in the repro Airborne insignia.
    I'm interested in buying a Canadian battle dress similar to this one, prefferably with everything original.

    I think those titles might actually be original? I don't suppose you have a close up? The Pegasus and airborne strips are replicas indeed.
