    Hi there.

    You will definitely need better photos of Parachute Regiment cap badge.

    Here is a pretty good link that can help you identify if it is a genuine or fake.

    Sorry I can’t help much more, but I’m sure someone will be along shortly who can give you a definite answer.

    I've found out from the seller that the badge is a reproduction - that's not really a problem for me as the seller fitted it and I can take it off. He believes that the beret is an original but would appreciate an opinon.

    I’m not really sure to be honest. But I don’t see any stamps/maker marks that I would expect to see, so I would be very suspicious.

    Here are a couple of threads about them
