    A nice example of the mid 50's bd. RCR bns were rotated through the reconstituted 1 Cdn Div in the 1950's, so the patches are correct.

    My only comment (maybe short of a concern) is the location of the para wings. Wouldn't you think there would be a space below for a ribbon bar? Many post war battledress were worn by WW2 vets who had all their ribbons sewn on, hence need for a standard spacing to accommodate this.
