ARTIFACT: Nice WWII British Paratrooper wing, removed from uniform. The British Paratroopers saw equal success and loss during the war and were instrumental during many major operations. Immediately following the end of WWII, the 1st Airborne was tasked with disarming the still strong, German occupation army and supervising their surrender during Operation Norway in 1945. The wing shows a cream colored parachute with light blue wings embroidered on olive drab felt. The wing came along with a British Parachute Regiment shoulder title (see link below)
