Response to No Need For A British Connection

Hi Alex,
I have mix feelings on this topic, but I respect your point of view! I've found two links that you may find interesting!

http://www.commando.org/badges/ (My absolute favorite jump wings are the 1950's issue!)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Canadian_Airborne_Regiment



Oh yes, one more question for you Alex! Your previously mentioned that Canadian Officers were posted to Fort Bragg (SF)HQ. on a unit exchange. ie during the 1960's. Do you know or heard about any Canadians that went to Vietnam with their unit taskings!? I've heard about Canadian sailors being transferred to the Royal Navy to earn their "dolphins" in Singapore during the Borneo Konfrontasi 1962-1966.(Borneo Conflict) I guess you could call it Britain's Vietnam.

Here's a neat article on this topic!
