Default I value your opinions on this Parachute Regiment Shoulder Title

Dear forum experts,

I picked up this Parachute Regiment Shoulder Title for Euro 10,- as I I thought I wanted to study it as I had bought another one too who which was a fake. Like working my up till I finally get a good one. But this one looks nice so I thought I would share it with you all.

I would welcome your expertise on this one. As you know I am just starting in the wonderful world of collecting so I have a long way to go but I am enjoying it none the less! :-)

Looking forward in hearing your opinions!

Have a great day and stay safe

Cheers!

Frank

Hi Jerry!

I hope things are doing good at your end? Thank you So much for your opinion! Always very appreciated! Could this be a genuine WW2 title?

Hi Jerry

Another question if I may ask!? At the bottom there are black lines on the title. Is the same as the dotted spots on a Pegasus patch? To show where you had to put it in your uniform?
