    Indeed, but the BD was very cheap and hopefully a 50's example will be cheaper than a WWII version.

    Some more pics to try and capture it?

    Yes, you can see it for sure. Trouble is, the is no real difference between a "ww2" wing and a 1950's one in my opinion. So they are all "WW2" when it comes to being sold. Just like printed "WW2" Pegasus flashes.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I feared that might be the case, same as for luftwaffe HG cap eagles on a black backing, always sold as HG, but many would have been mechanics!!!

    What a nice little 'extra', makes a nice example of a 1949 BD into a very nice example

    On the ww2 vs 1950s parachute qualification badges, I am fairly sure there is no discernible difference. I have a 1949 BD with it's original parachute badge still on it though, so I could take a picture as a 'reference' on this.

    That would be good if you can Rob and much appreciated. I had "feared" they might be the same and as Ade posted, nobody is going to sell one as a 50's version when they can call it WWII and ask WWII prices. I have seen a few for sale at this time and I know what the example I bought to replace the one on my Scots guards KD tunic cost, so I'll probably leave it a while to replace this one.

    Hi, a US war aid BD is on my list to get, along with a Canadian example and of course a war time British 40 pattern. So far I have a 37 pattern, an Indian war time example, a 50's NZ example and this one.

    I look forward to seeing your badged examples.

    Many thanks Rob, that is a great looking badged BD. That is an interesting version of the para qualification wings, a type I do not remember seeing previously, with the threads going in different directions on the lower wings.

    I like the fact that he has returned to the use of collar dogs on his lapels, something I have seen in photographs, a nice touch IMO.

    Is that the black cat of London div on the other sleeve?
