Default Canadian Parachute Corps-Airborne-Studio Picture

I have just checked the nominal roll for 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion. There is no J C Smith but there is a W D Prince. Could be him if he didn't like his first name.

The BD looks like it could potentially be a good one. The problem with 1st Can Para stuff is many collectors get nervous if it isn’t named! However, legitimate unnamed stuff does exist out there.
