Not only were two parachute divisions equipped with the Denison, I also hasten to add they were standard issue for the scout and sniper platoons of infantry battalions in British and Canadian line infantry divisions. Additionally, there must have been a surplus, since in at least one Canadian battalion, 1st Battalion, The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, they were worn by senior officers and warrant officers in addition to the battalion scouts and snipers.
