Would anyone venture a guess as to the wing being worn on the right sleeve partially visible?

One of those Jedburgh 'SF' wings, judging by the shape of it.

Weren't those wings worn by SOE Brits and OSS Americans as an identifying insignia? I also note the Parachute Regiment cap badge. Captain Benoit looks like he has a CANADA badge on his left shoulder.

Interesting study of Canadians in a very specialized role.

Cheers,
Dan.

Looks like they're wearing Type 6 wings on their chest.

Great Photo
