I've only recently seriously focused on WW2 Canadian Militaria and I guess should have invested in the proper reference library first.
I had at one time easily $1500 worth of ref books on my shelf on WW2 German stuff etc. Now I've just lost the desire for German stuff largely because of
getting burned even by reputable dealers! Anyway, I've spent far too much money on that stuff. I naively thought It would be different with WW2 Canadian stuff.
I have to take the full blame for this dispatch rider/paratrooper wannabe helmet, that was just pure laziness on my part. It did come from a seller in the US so
It's possible that he didn't know what he was selling. Anyway, my bad so they say.....
Time for me to be a little more loyal with this hobby to both my grandfathers who served in WW2..
One was in the Cdn Air force and one was in the Royal Malta Artillery.
I would like to thank everyone for their time and patience ..........
Here's a set of Paratrooper insignia which I hope is OK.
The wings are on a dark green backing. Both appear removed from a uniform.
