    Canadian SAS Cadet Corps

    Post by Tankermike on Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:31 pm

    If someone told me this I wouldn't have believed them. Stationed in Portage La Prairie Manitoba, close to the Parachute School in Rivers was the Canadian SAS Cadet Corps.

    I wonder what should flash and cap badge they wore. Could they have worn the wartime brass Parachute Batt. cap badge? Looking on the internet I could not find any reference to this cadet corps other than the corps was called the Manitoba Special Air Service Cadet Corps #745, formed September 28, 1948 and disbanded April 25, 1968.
