Default 1st Can Para insignia and medal grouping.

Medals and insignia to Pvt W A Harrison of the 1st Can Para behind framed glass, purchased this way.

Pardon the reflection but the insignia is behind old framed glass and sealed so the photos are the best I can do, there is some reflection. The top left corner of each photo contains a watermark if your wondering what that is.

Cheers
Doug

Hi Jim, thanks for the welcome mat! (GHW is actually where I make my day to day home - German Helmet Walhalla, I moderate over there for all the helmet nuts LOL).

I have been fairly active badge collecting and once time permits I will be posting some of them! It's a passion to be sure!

Cheers Jim, thanks for the compliments.

Doug

Hi Brent I am sorry I do not at this time. It is something I would like to research in the future for sure.

Love those wings... very clearly WW2 vintage. Now why can't they all be that obvious? Very nice collection Doug. Can't wait to see it.
