    Default unknown para-badge or wing?

    Hello,i've being ejoying your forum quite a while,but never ever posted anything.
    I don't know if this is the right section to place my question,so do feel free to place it in an other section.
    Sometime ago i picked up this strange badge or parawing in a flea-market in Holland.
    It's made of brass and beneath the parachute is hanging a (Dutch windmill)
    I've searched the internet and Googled a long time but couldnt find anything.
    So I would be very pleased if anyone could tell anything about this wing.

    regards Theo

    Welcome, and feel free to post more. I strongly suspect that this is a commemorative pin for the parachute jump made at Arnhem for the famous "Bridge too Far" battle.

    Steve,I've read your answer and maybe you're right,but during my research I found a parachute-wing that looks to be made in the same style .
    Maybe it is used in the Dutch-army during the Indonesian indipendence war.(1945-1950)
    When I find out what this wing was used for,I 'll let you know.

    regards Theo

    P.S this is the Dutch page,just click on "wings"below
