 The above is the Junior Parachute Company Wing. This is an early one. I got this wing from a friend who was in the Para's. He tells me they used to chase the Junior Para's and cut there wings up. This means that this badge is pretty rare nowadays

The Junior Parachute Company was part of the Parachute Regiment and consisted of boys aged between 15 and 17. All hoping to become Para's by the age of 18. The company no longer exists. It was formed in 1961 and disbanded in 1993.
