a couple of small bits


Recommended Posts

Can't help but notice the Canadian parachute wings on the guy in the middle though...the Brits wore them on their sleeve, the Canadians wore them over the left breast pocket on the Denison. Unless Brit glider boys did things that way too, I'm no expert.

I do like the striking colours and the models/photos are excellent. Are they re-enactors, or are they colourized WW II pics like the CMBO portraits were?

yep they are from a re-enactment group. Their site has some great images however they do have a mixture of Canadian and Brit throughout. I guess the image I used wasnt labled. I had a feeling it looked "the odd man out". I will edit out the wings, I noted also that the Canandian uniform (at the site) has a yellow bar on the shoulder?

[edit - wings removed and file updated]
