BACKGROUND: Every infantry or armored regiment had its own insignia. Cap badges were usually made of white metal, brass, copper or bi-metal. Most commonly brass and white metal were used. Officers were sometimes known to wear private purchase cap badges made of silver or silver bullion. The Parachute Regiment originally wore the Army Air Corp badge until May of 1943 when a new badge was approved for them.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A nickel-silver plated, cast, brass cap badge, about 7cm x 4cm, of a parachute to the center of a pair of outstretched wings surmounted by a crowned lion on top a King’s crown. Slider attachment to the reverse (Late 1940's/1950's vintage).
