Default 1 CANPARA yellow ribbon

OK, I know that anything related to 1CANPARA is rare, expensive, etc.

But come on, this is not even original, its yellow ribbon!!

Pity he only has one set, and he offers free shipping.
What more could you want?

I think that it may be original "tape". But, it is an awful price to pay.
Unless, of course, you are putting together an "authentic BD".

Default 1CANPARA tape

these particular 12mm gold-yellow cotton tapes bare a striking resemblance to unissued British 3rd Parachute Brigade loops worn at the base of BD - Battle Dress shoulder straps by members of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion

"Striking resemblance", not even original?

Whatever the fact, they are very very expensive pieces of cloth.

Looks like standard bias binding tape, they might have used that but the ones I have seen are different.
