Default Canadian Parachute Corps cap badge

Pictures of my Para Badge with "Ellis Lugs". The bent one still open enough to receive the "cotter pin"( which I have also ) -May have been damaged while attached .Badge shows all the little marks attributed to original. Any info out there on the company -McKenzie-Clay , that may have produced this version. ? Thanks !

The company was in Winnipeg and made badges for some Cdn units during the Second WW.

The flat stamped lugs were typical of Mackenzie-Clay. They used that type throughout the war.
