Insignia on sleeve of a battledress blouse believed to have been worn by an instructor at Shilo, Manitoba in WWII. Found with the AIRBORNE CANADA US Jacket Parachutist - Colin M. Stevens Collection
RARE battledress blouse AIRBORNE CANADA Staff Sergeant. This one belonged to an unnamed instructor at A-35 Parachute Training Centre in Shilo, Manitoba. Found by fellow collector at a New Westminster antique show along with a WWII U.S. Paratrooper Jacket which also has AIRBORNE CANADA titles, an instructor badge and Sergeant rank. I believe that they belonged to the same man. Original Printed Pegasus patches on both sleeves which is really rare. BD blouse has serious moth damage to front but the rarity with the rare insignia makes it special. Two medal ribbons showing he was overseas, almost certainly with 1 Canadian Parachute Battalion. I spoke with others who were instructors at Shilo A-35 Parachute Training School (late Pte. Monty Marsden and Knobby Clark) but we could not figure out who this soldier was. VERY RARE $2,000

Helmet, AIRBORNE, British 1944. ORIGINAL. Web chin straps. Made by BMB (Briggs Motor Bodies) in UK. I purchased this one in Scotland in an antique shop. Multiple names. ARON W ; TRCC D SOLL (?) MOTTS BENTLEY 1177 6399479 (?). Faintly in red paint on left side are the numbers "63". I replaced the chin-strap with another original as the bugs had damaged the chin cup. That one is for sale separately below. The helmet appears to have been a barn find. Bugs have eaten away at the lining but it is still there and displayable. Has it been anywhere? I carried on the rest of my trip through Scotland, France (Pegasus Bridge, Gold, Sword, Juno, Ohmaha beaches, Dieppe, Vimy, Arras, Albert, Beaumont Hamel, Etaples & Paris) and Italy (Rome). $1,500
